When cleaning the car today I noticed there seems to be a bit of a leak at the gearbox near where the linkage is attached? Cleaned it up and will see if any fresh leaks in a few days time.
Has anyone else noticed if their gearbox is the same, going to try get it booked in the next few weeks as warranty is up in a few months time

After much googling, found out it's the breather for the gearbox, and will have a bit of oil on it when the gearbox heats up and vents
