If your transaxle is leaking from the left side axle shaft seal then you can repair it by having the inner axle CV joint inspected for damage and replace the transaxle shaft bushing and seal on that side following technical bulletin 16-0043 dated March 2016. The side bushing gets worn and then may damage the CV joint surface and leak from the seal.
