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.
tailshaft flange seal leak I am guessing. Very few drops of liquid coming out from the center of the car. It's audi A4 3.0 convertible
A pink fluid was leaking. Mechanic said it was the rear transmission seal and replaced the seal. Part cost was ~$34 but the labor was $325. Transmission is still leaking and the car is scheduled to be brought back in for repair on Monday 3/7/2016
