TC Fluid Leak


Today I found out that my TC has a small leak.
I cleaned everything up and drove 30 miles home. Then I saw that about 3-5 drops came out of the leak. The leak is higher than teh TC fluid level. It only leaks when the TC is in use.

What could cause the leak? A too big driveshaft angle? How can I fix it?
Is there a risk to drive with this leak for some months?
After chrismas Ill install a SYE and I dont want to seal this up when I replace this rear housing some months later. Im too lazy for that.

Thanks for your halp.

Looks like the seal on the rear tail housing let go. It probably is coming too much lift on your stock driveshaft. I would also just wait until you do your SYE since you'll be replacing all of that anyway.
