    I dunno if yours would be the same, but on my yota i replaced the drain plug and washer cuz it was stripped and it dropped a little too. maybe try that.

    did you try tightening up the bolts where it's leaking? At the adapter I'm guessing

    I had the same problem, I tried tightening the bolts (mine was leaking at the center of the case where the two halves bolt together). I eventually just slabbed some JB Weld along the seem and no leaks since /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What kind of case do you have? I just had the same prob as you and ended up pulling my 203 and changing the adapter gasket. Atleast if you go this route you can give the tc a once over. You can get a complete gasket set for about 10 bucks. Now I just have to motivate myself to put that 300 lb skillet back in the rig!!

    I find it strange that your VW even has a transfer case /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    It would help if we knew what transfer case you have or even what year the vehicle is so we can guess. If it has a slip yoke output, it is normal for those to seep a little fluid past the seal during usage. You have to replace stuff fairly often to avoid this. If the front output or the rear fixed output is leaking, this can be fixed easily by draining the case, pulling the yoke and replacing the seal.

    If it is leaking from a seam, you will likely have to take the case apart just a little to fix it, but your chances are good that it won't require removing the T-case from the vehicle.

    So where is the leak?

    its a 208, it looks like it may be leaking from case, were it bolts together.
