    Same place do the clutch work? Poss. seal damaged when clutch installed. Also if all it needs is a seal that is to much.

    Find another place to get your car fixed! First, the seal was most likely damaged when clutch was installed.
    Second, a big price for this job is 150.00 IF all it needs is an axle seal. I have been doing this stuff for 38 years.
    So i know just a little bit about what i am telling you. Sorry but that's just the way it is.

    That is a FAIRLY HIGH estimate! Should be $250 TOPS at a shop that charges $120/hour and 300% parts mark-up!!!...sorry to say this but spending $2,300 should have included REBUILDING your transaxle!
