ATF is leaking between the transmission housing and the transfer case. The two ring seals have changed twice but it is still leaking. Thank you for your help!

Gotta ask first so I know how to or home doing the work? Who's diagnosing and how?
The seals were replaced by ASE certified technician in an independent shop. He also used dye to check for crack in the housing but didn't find any. I can see the leak under the car after it was driven. Any advise would be appreciated!
Judging by that part that says "NotAHondaFan", I guess suggesting the dealer and HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR BOTH DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIR ,would be out of the question? I know at the dealer I work at , if we screw up a diagnosis , we usually end up fixing it for free. Possibly the tech you have working on your Pilot can check for any leaks from behind the torque converter , and pull the shift cable cover off and check the shifter seal ,if he hasn't already. Those were 2 of the more common things we see. THIS MAY SOUND STUPID AND PISS OFF SOMEONE , but did he use Honda parts?
Honda parts bought from dealer were used. The tech already checked the shifter cable seal but it didn't look like that was the source of the leak. How much labor time would it take to check the torque convert seal for leak? Thanx!
