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



Tom, I have the double lip lip seals with sleeves which may work better. I
can also get them tighter if needed.

Dave,

That got me wondering... Since I got those o-rings from the Renault dealer 
and they see this problem very often, maybe they supply the wrong size 
o-ring? That is possible. I guess I'll remove the flanges again to see if I 
can fix it right.

Thank you
