    Default Gear Oil over filled....!

    Signum, 2.0 dti, manual F23 Box

    Checked the oil level of my gear box yesterday and to my shock I managed to drain a litre of oil out of the level plug, it came gushing out. Damage has already been done, N/S drive shaft seal leaking. My question is how did this happen. I've owned the car since May 09, done 18,000 miles with no leak. The only time some else has worked on it is when the clutch was changed in January, is there any need to drain and refill the gear oil before a clutch change, if so someone going to be getting a call.
