Hi I have now found out the gear oil leak is coming inside the gearbox bell housing I have power washed all the gearbox and surrounding areas removed gearbox drain plug totally drained the box dry and I have refilled with the correct grade of gear oil 2.5 litres and then took it for a run it only seems to leak when the vehicle is in use.
When I parked up there was drips coming from the bottom of the bell housing so I'm thinking the seal on the main shaft that goes into the clutch plate must have failed that's the only thing I can think of.
Does anyone know if this is likely gearbox is very smooth through the gears no whines or anything like that it just leaks oil.
HELP PLEASE it's driving me bloody mad.
Thanks for reading.
