Love the car but I would like this to be taken care of right the first ime.


If oil has leaked into the bell housing (which the dealer has admitted that it has, and you can see that in the pictures ), then the clutches have definitely become contaminated with oil and need to be replaced. TSB 11-12-13 talks about replacing the seals AND the clutches, I would press your dealer to do the job properly.
