Leak at shaft between Tranny and Differential in a 99

Customer Question
Leak at shaft...

Leak at shaft between Tranny and Differential in a 99 Corvette, Automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

What hoses? it appears to be a shaft seal in the rear of the tranny.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corvette yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to fix it myself, but I don't know what's involved. I have not tried anything yet

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, I'm just trying to decide if it's reasonable to do myself or not. It appears to be a lot of labor which can be expensive to have done.

Getting the transmission out of this car is not a very easy task for a DIY type. You really need the car in the air on a lift.

How mechanically inclined are you?
