    i had a small fluid leak after i replaced the transmission coming from the left axle, i put the seal up as close as i could then used a few socket extensions and a hammer and pounded it a little bit, and for the most part it stopped the leak.
    but its still leaking a bit.

    is there something special im supposed to do?

    well, when i put the fluid in, i forgot about the seal.
    so it was still in the middle of the axle.
    so i got under the car real quick and pushed in in there.

    it didnt look damaged.
