leaking shaft seal
Seal was leaking. Replaced by dealer service department. Three months later, leaking again.
Rear seal leaking on the exhaust. Installed new seal and problem still persists. Not sure if there might be a blocked vent in the transmission that would create pressure in the transmission causing the leak. Still not fixed.
