Hi guys, I'm hoping to get some information on my Fiesta ST150. I recently replaced the Gearbox about 2 months ago and then did a gearbox oil flush after 1000kms of driving and I have noticed an oil leak on top of my gearbox just beneath the battery area. I have wiped it up and the next day when I checked, it was there again. My suspicion is that it's most probably gearbox oil leaking from the breather but not too sure on that. I have spoken to multiple people regarding this and I am getting very different responses like: "The gearbox has been overfilled with oil hence the leak through the breather" and others are saying "It's impossible to overfill the gearbox and the breather could be faulty"
All this makes me pretty confused and I haven't yet read or heard of anyone with a similar issue.
Any form of help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million.

Do you have a mk6 or mk7 ST?
