Transmission Leak

Hey guys, I need some advice. I recently bought an 02 Wrangler with 52K miles on it. I have found that it becomes a little more diffcult to shift the longer I drive it. I looked at the transmission to locate a small leak near the front(I believe it is called the bell housing). The leak does not have a transmission fluid smell or look. Any suggestions?

I uploaded some pictures of the leak. Thanks in advance!

Flatline,

Thanks! How much should I expect to pay to fix leak? How much of a priority should it be? Thanks!

mine's been leaking for years. small 1" spot on driveway. from your picture it doesn't look to bad yet. not a huge priority for me till it leaves a 4" spot. I do my own work so I don't know shop rates. but I would guess at least 3 hr. shop time plus oil change, then whatever else they can think of. so $400 would probably be on the low side. unless you can find a honest mechanic, good luck with that.
