2004 Volvo V70R, transmission fluid leaking on my 6 spd

Customer Question

2004 Volvo V70R, transmission fluid leaking on my 6 spd manual? I just replaced the axles and wheel bearings. When I pulled the axles I had no fluid loss, which meant the fluid was low. I drained the transmission fluid and refilled it to the correct level. I didn't have any leaks immediately but now two days later I've got a really bad leak which appears to be coming from in between the transmission and transfer case? What is likely failed and how do I fix it?

Pete, thank you for attempting to assist with my problem. I'm fully aware that its likely a seal. Unfortunately I do need an expert who is very knowledgeable with the V70R. I recently rebuilt the motor myself and I'd like to hear from a Volvo expert who's seen this problem and knows exactly what's likely the cause.I would appreciate it if you could bow out of the question and open it back up to experts who are familiar with this issue.Thank you,Aaron
