Axle leaking oil?

Where my drivers side axle (half shaft) plugs into the transmission, there appears to be some oil leaking from it. Did I miss something when I installed it? It appears to be in all the way, especially since I had to line up the holes on the engine block to mount it with.

There is an axle seal in there, you may have damaged it if you weren't careful. Not too hard to fix, though.

sounds like your axle seal is bad, they can go bad when you swap out axles. No biggie its a 7 dollar part.
