Ok my gearbox is leaking like the title says. Firstly its not the pan gaskets before evryone assumes them. ghead
It seems to be leaking from the middle of the bellhousing. I was just wondering wat in there has a chance to be leaking. Its not leaking majorly, i just like to have my car in perfect order.

If anyone has a diagram of the gearbox layout of a 1994 bmw 318i m43 "not 42 but is very similar" can you post it in this thread and i will see if i can point out wat i believe may be leaking and we can work from there


Thx

the bell housing has your clutch and all its components. are you sure its leaking there and not near the back of the housing where the actual transmission is?

It could be the rear crank oil seal... that would tend to drip oil into your bellhousing. Is it motor oil, or ATF?
