I split the case and rebuilt my A3: bearings, seals, GASKETS. But it's leaking tranny fluid right out the bottom on the case seam. In futility I tried putting some gasgacinch on the seam on the outside but it only slowed the leak a little. The case bolts are nice and tight.
I'm thinking I may have to split the case again, put gasket sealer everywhere, then seal it up again. Are there any easier options? Maybe heat cycle it with no tranny fluid?
