If there is a leak that requires pulling the transaxle out, it probably means the front pump is leaking. Just about every other oil leak can be serviced in chassis. In the case of the front pump, the transaxle comes out and the seal at the input shaft will get replaced. However, the seal can leak due to an overheating situation, so if this is the case, internal damage may have already occurred. Might be advisable to get a second opinion.

The best thing for you to do is get a hold of a shop manual to refer to. Removing a transmission is no easy accomplishment - I strongly advise a shop setting to carry this out in.
