I have a leak coming from this same exact area as shown in the picture.
I just noticed it shortly after changing out my transmission and front differential fluid.
At first I thought it was leaking near the drain plug area but as you notice that just happens to be where the natural flow of oil will follow.
After cleaning it all and checking back a few hours later the only wet area is near the spot shown in this picture.
When I cleaned it I also tried to screw in the drain plug tighter thinking that might have been the problem. I'm sure I over torqued it and will never get it off.
So back to the leak....
Interestingly enough I had a split CV Boot right on that same shaft replaced just about a month ago.
I am sure that the leak must be a result from that work done at the dealer.
This of course has been the only thing I have had the dealer do that I didn't do myself and here we have a leak.
Do you think the dealer will give me any resistance when it comes to making this right and repairing the leak now?
This brings a couple of questions to mind.
When they replace a CV Boot does transmission and differential OIL sill out of transmission area?
If they caused a leak of my transmission fluid by replacing a CV Boot it leads me to believe that changing out the boot might cause oil to be lost.
If that's the case they did not inform me and they surely did not refill with the same fluid I had in there. (REDLINE) Can someone confirm my ideas on the fluid being lost during a CV Boot replacement.

I did not look close when I had them out but I assume there is some kind of gasket by the spline that I may have damaged? Anyone have a part number? My vacation pics are at work. The pic below shows where I think the fluid is coming from. Is this easy to fix? Out of warranty.
