Re: [DML] manual transmission leaking

If the trans and frame are wet, it's probably coming from somewhere 
forward of the clutch area.  Leaks tend to flow toward the rear of the 
car.  Wash it down with spray brake cleaner and try to find the place of 
origin.  If it is at the tail, (front) of the trans check to see if the 
main shaft nut has machined a hole in the cap. If not, keep looking. 
Gear oil smells much stronger than motor oil, so be sure it is indeed 
that.  Suspect everything, let your eyes tell you what's wrong.

We have the 103177 clutch shaft seal, $20.93.
