Depends on theseverity of the leak. If it's just seeping, maybe you don't want to do anything except check on the transmission fluid to be sure it isn't low. If it's a big leak, then you probably should get it fixed. The price and effort depends on which seals are leaking. the drive axle seals are not hard to replace but the front seal requires that the transmission come out for the repair.
