Default Transmission seal leak

Have a transmission leak, believe it's from the seal on the driver side, drive axle.
Wondering this anyone has taken on this repair.

You might want to check your solenoid pack, as these are known for leaking. It may or may not be the issue with yours, but it solved the problem on my end. Good luck!

Did this job on a minivan years ago...same transaxle. First make sure that the leak is actually coming from the drive axle before you tear everything apart. My advice is to get a Chiltons or Haynes repair walks you through this job. Took me all day (did both sides)...a lot of work to replace a few $ part but saved me hundreds compared to what the dealer wanted to do the job. Good luck.
