      I was changing my oil this past weekend and noticed that the rear of my tranny looked wet. It looks like I have a very slow leak where the driveshaft ties into the back of the tranny. I'm assuming there is some type of seal there that might be bad.

      Anyone know how hard this would be to replace? Anything else that could be causing the leak? The tranny is a 5R55E.
