I recently had my both axles replaced on my 96 acura integra ls, following diagnosis that both front and rear cv boots were cracked and/or torn. After these replacements, I noticed a spot of transmission fluid under passenger side of car, suggesting a leak. Is it possible that in replacing the drive axles, the shop damaged seals? It may be coincidence but I never had any tranny fluid leaks prior to this work. Thanks in advance.

some fluid loss will happen when changing the axles. hopefully, they refilled it and you may have residue from the job. take it back and have it checked.

Thanks Roy. As it turns out, it appears that shop may have damaged a seal during the initial install. They were happy to cover the seal under warranty.
