Hi again,    looks like the axle seals [transaxle output] are leaking.... very easy and inexpensive to replace..
Remember to lubricate the oil seal lips when You install them so they don't run dry & wear out very fast....
As I said I have had to replace the gearshifter shaft oil seal on  My gearbox... there is a seal kit available very inexpensive...
I would also change the oil from the gearbox....  and replace it with new 90 HYPOID oil... it MUST be Hypoid oil...
once You smell Hypoid oil, You will never forget that smell..  lol
also I recommend that You take the CV Joints off and soak them and clean them and then repack them fully with LITHIUM Based Moly Grease..
and those 4 cv joints will last indefinitely ... and you will need 4 new CV joint boots...  I always pack the cv joint boot with grease too..
Don't use the clay or soap based Green chassis grease... Also use this grease in the front end [with the front in the air] and in bearings etc..
If You clean & repack the front & rear wheel bearings You can repack them with this grease and then forget them.
This IS the grease that Volkswagen originally recommended...  Don't get this grease on any clothes... I doubt You would ever get it out...
It is a dark grey colour...

I have just got off a 7 day stretch of working and will have several weeks to work on the bug. I have a new torque converter seal and axle seals on the way and I am trying to find CV boot kits. Is there a difference in inner/outer and left/right or are they interchangeable. I have found some that are made in Germany, but they only say "rear". Will these work?

Hi,. I actually answered this a few days ago but it didn't work....
Yes, all VW Beetle cv joint boots are the same... supers the same... type 2 kombis transporters have larger ones... Make sure You lubricate the T/C seal with ATF... Do You have a dual lipped seal so you can wipe a few drops with your finger so the seal is lubricated and not dry, which will wear it out prematurely...  Clean the CV JOINTS and fill them up with LITHIUM based MOLY grease... Do NOT use clay or soap based grease... Your CV joints will last virtually forever when you use the correct grease. Also use this grease in the front end, and also in wheel bearings etc... make sure You lubricate teh axle seals too with Hypoid oil.... and refill the gearbox with HYPOID oil.... once You smell it You will never forget the smell.... lol ...   Make sure You undo the side plug on the LHS of the gearbox first, and then the bottom drain plug.... Many people have been caught by undoing the bottom plug and draining the oil, only NOT being able to undo the filler plug.... YIKES....
Also don't forget to pein the seal in at least 4 positions around the seal with a punch or screw driver.. so the seal doesn't pop off....

cheers
