you have to watch out for the main agents, I had something similar in January this year, I had fully serviced the car myself 2 month earlier, the car went in for brake fluid change, when it was finished the service manager said, by the way, you have an oil leak on the autobox and its the seal at the rear, cost 475 ish to investigate and rectify unless we find anything else wrong of course.
I went home and stuck it on axle stands and removed all the plastic closures underneath and turned out to be where i had cleaned and washed the oil off the side of the engine when checking the swirl flap condition, black oil, not red tranmission fluid!
7 months down the road no leaks and still drives just like a new one!
These main agents must be thinking along the lines that customers are numpties and know nothing about cars at all, of course some have no idea, but its the old scaremongering trick and many have no choice but to believe them, there must hundreds of owners who have paid out for problems that just dont exist.
