Not really much to go wrong with a viscous diff,wonder whats failing?.
Wearing out. A few years ago we opened one from a Cosworth Escort and put new VC fluid in (sourced from California, but quite expensive, dunno if there are other sources now). It worked, despite the unit apparently not being 'servicable'.

I think the VC on the Aerio is just in-line between two prop shafts? If that's the case maybe you could just eliminate it by making one prop shaft. Or even fit some sort of rubber coupling between the two prop shafts to take up some shock and vibration - like VW Synchro.
