    Hi all,

    Maybe a really stupid question but my N/S cv has gone so I have bought a complete salvaged driveshaft and I am planning to change the whole thing. Does the gearbox oil leak when the driveshaft is removed or does it stay in the gearbox.

    And is there anything out of the ordinary I need to take note of?

    Apologies for my stupidity.

    Cheers

    Chris
