    Hi, yesterday I was going to change the fluid of my gearbox when I sow that it was liking. I think it´s the transmission.
    Could any one have an idea what it will be? Is it some thing that I can fix or it´s better to go to a workshop?
    Thank´s.

    That looks like a driveshaft seal. Not all too difficult to replace.

    Get some brake cleaner around the driveshaft seal clean that area and examine in a day or two.

    Today I tried to change the driveshaft but I could not remove the nut it is very attached. I think that I must buy a proper toll to remove it.

    You need a very long breaker bar to crack that lose. I believe it's tightened to excess of 132nm

    The heat dilates nut and beat a few with the hammer before cooling, to loosen from the rust.

    It shouldn't be too rusty especially on yours, it's just very very tight and you need a lot of muscle to undo it.

    That's right you need good leverage on the nut, such as a 4 foot pole.

    I don´t have a long breaker bar and I think that's the problem, I will put same W40, and will try again.
