    Default Aaarrrgh !!!!

    hi peeps , the story is I had an oil leak from my N/S driveshaft ( 1.8 ) so I changed the driveshaft oil seal and thought that was it ..... WRONG still leaked .
    I then tried another driveshaft ( just incase first one was worn or something ) and a new seal again . and now you've guessed it STILL F###'N LEAKING !
    My question to you is WTF is wrong here ? is there another seal further into gearbox ? does the box need stripped for this ?
    or what else can be the prob?
    thanks gurus

    not familiar with the f40 but my bird's puma had a gearbox leak recently and it was an internal gearbox seal. apparently there are something like 3 seals in the box. she took it to an independant gearbox specialist and they only charged £150 to sort it. so worth shopping around if it is that mate.

    Most likely its the rear main oil seal (I've had two!) - is the leak dripping down roughly in line with the sump plug and then running down the arm?

    Had the same one done as well, then they found a leak from the sump gasket. All fixed under warranty.

    the leak is from the driveshaft seal as far as I can see , all other gaskets etc are fine thats why I ask if its further inside g/box.

    checked the breather on the top of the box is clear so it's no pressurising the casing and forcing oil out?
