Atf 4 leak from transmission.
Ok here it goes. I have read the pros and cons on the fluid type to use in the manual trans. I have replaced the seals three times and had it professionally done the fourth and continues to leak at front passenger side. Replace the drive shaft as well. I hate having fluid in my drive way.
I feel that if I drain the required fluid and replace it with a thicker medium the leak will stop.
My question is what is the forum suggestions?
My MK is an 07 fd1 with 80k. Thanks for any feedback.

Sounds like the bearings(or bushings) in the trans is shot allowing to much axial play in that inner CV cup.Fix it correctly and it will stop the leak.
