I've found i've had to used a bit of sealant on the outside of the gearbox seals (seal to gearbox casing joint) to stop leaks even with new seals - usually on the diff seals though.

I have some Wellseal that I use to seal the casing's up so I put some of that on before putting the seals back in.

Some bad luck there Keith. Especially with the gearbox seal. Having only done limited miles is just a pain.

I have never changed the seal myself. I have just reused the ones in the box. I guess I have been lucky.

Seems like you have got it all under control.
