    Torque converter seal is a common place for them to leak - about a £10 seal but it is a gearbox out job, so time consuming.

    That's my assumption too, I saw some posts about it being a weak point.. Oh well. Onwards and upwards

    If the ATF leak is comeing from the bellhousing then it will be the torque converter seal on the input shaft. This is one of the most common failure points on the car. It is a gearbox out job to rectify, but the seal is not expensive.

    Drone at the back sounds very likely to be a bearing.

    It was indeed the bearing. Just had both rear hubs done and itís smooth and quiet now. Gearbox leak seems to have settled down.. maybe the rislone did rejuvenate that seal..?! I wasnít expecting much from it. Iíll keep an eye on it!

    Next stop, the oil leaks..
