I've got a 320 with 50k on it.
From the MoT I've been told there is a film of automatic transmission fluid on the bottom of the gearbox. They could not source it. I've had a look and it seems fairly uniform. Are there any probable sources I could check? It's a fine film and there's no drips on the garage floor (hence not realising the problem).
When I bought the car it had just been 'thoroughly' serviced by the dealer but after a couple of weeks I noted that there was oil coming from the power steering reservoir. It had been overfilled. (Very thorough!). Could this be the source of the leak?
I was going to get the autobox fluid changed at 60k so it's no big deal to do it now.
As an aside, I keep getting told off for not posting whenever I log on.
