While under the car this weekend I noticed that the gearbox is leaking oil by the shifter rod.
Its supposed to be a misson for the home mechanic but has anyone changed theirs out?

Not done it myself, but had it done by a Subaru mech(Ex SSA CT) a while ago.
You must remove the prop shaft, shifter, and then that end-cover. I think there is a bush and seal to be replaced.
