If you can, Degrease the whole area, and then you can pin point it exactly where its coming from, but my guess it is a main rear seal, its very hard to get them to ever seal again i have been told :(

That Really does not sound good if the bolts are just spinning and not being able to do them up to seal the box. Im not to sure of the set up with the Manuals
