This is a discussion on Assembly Lube, Gear Oil, Motor Oil... or Paranoia? within the Focus RS Maintenance forums, part of the Focus RS Garage category; Anyone else with this issue or did I just get terribly unlucky? If transmission has to be removed to replace seal I may have heart ...
Anyone else with this issue or did I just get terribly unlucky? If transmission has to be removed to replace seal I may have heart failure...

Mine did the wheel chirp once.. I think. I thought I ran over something, maybe I did but that was the only time I had a noise during take off.
OP, you'll need to get that to the dealer unfortunately.
OP, get to a dealer ASAP. Get it documented and fixed. Even if it is a slow leak, you could be out of fluid in an astonishingly quick time period. I don't know how much the gearboxes hold but modern cars don't have much(usually).

Well the saga continues... took the car to the dealership... we are unsure if its is motor oil (rear main seal leak), PTU leak, or transmission leak. Tried to black light the oil and smell to try and figure which one is leaking. Dye has been added to my motor oil to check soon if it is rear main seal leak. Will be very easy to tell when the oil glows bright yellow from the dye.
Something strange... we opened up the fill holes for both the transmission and the PTU, both poured fluid out.. they had both been overfilled by the factory. My greatest hope is that with removing some of the oil is that it will quit leaking, maybe they were so overfilled it was pushing out the seal? So this is a "to be continued" situation. Worst case scenario when I get under the car again I black light it and its motor oil from rear main seal leak. (I would die inside a little) Best case scenario it is no longer leaking due to having proper amount of fluid in it.
