My Ride: 01 330i
Transmission Input Shaft leak

Recently me and my pops changed the clutch on my 02 330i. We changed all the recommended seals, parts, etc.... We followed the Pelican parts guide and the bavauto youtube videos. So after putting everything back together and driving her around for a few days I noticed that the car was leaking transmission fluid. After putting my car on stands I noticed there was transmission fluid under the bell housing. After looking around on the forum for some possibilities I came across this article http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1017019. Turns out that placing the input seal flush was incorrect. So we took the whole transmission down for a second time, bought a new seal, and drove the new seal in further. After putting it back together it is still leaking. We plan to take down the transmission down for a third time and see if we can drive a new seal in further. I hope this will fix the problem; however, since I really do not want to take down my transmission for a fourth time does anyone know any other possible problems for a transmission input shaft leak?
