Considering I have had seals replaced before, and the engine replaced, maybe someone stripped the 12mm and found that as a replacement. Lots easier IMHO.
Anyways, looks like the seals are leaking , and of course this is out of warranty, just wondering what the going rate/price is to have the TC seals replaced? It appears there would be lots of labor involved.
Im in Canada, and I got quoted $2500 from the Dealership and $1700 from a local mechanic. I think they said 15H labour?
Ive got a slow leak too, but not very much, so I just have the mechanic check and top up the TC fluid during oil changes, I will eventually have it fixed but I figure keeping an eye on it and topping it up should keep it going until I can afford to fix it.
