Re: [DML] transmission leak along flange / output shaft splines?



You only need to replace the o-ring that is inside around the stub axle.

Item #1. It is at the inside end of the splines, and can be removed with a pick tool and replaced without taking anything apart other than the flange. 

I hate to argue with Renault mechanics but I've never seen one leak down the splines if this o-ring is in place and is the correct part.
