Boxster manual transmission leak

I recently replaced the RMS, intermediate shaft bearing and input shaft seal on my 99 boxster thinking one of them was the cause of a small leak. Also replaced the clutch and pressure plate while I was in there. I know, but it's just the kid's inheritance.

The usual suspects are eliminated and the leak is still occurring.

It sure appears it is manual transmission fluid leaking between where the two main sections of the transmission housing connect together.

I cannot see one other human out there who has had this problem though. Anyone else experience this and fix it??

Did you check the torque on all of those fasteners?

I did not check the nms with a torque wrench, but I did go around the housing with a socket wrench and make sure nothing would move. All very snug.

Do you happen to know if the two sections have a gasket between them? or loctite?

Thanks for the link. Looks like they used Loctite 574. I appreciate your input.
