Sounds like leak probably coming from seal on side of transmission where cv axle goes in. If so should have axle taken out to replace seal. If is axle itself- you should see one or both boots torn. If so you may be able to get some axle grease and new boot (one called split boot nice cuz can install without taking axle off vehicle). You may not have to replace if caught early.
