Maybe moving thinks around caused the seal to start leaking. This is why its best to replace as many seals as possible when doing a transmission service.
Thanks, I'll take a look at them tomorrow morning. I have noticed that the electrical connector is usually covered in fluid so it's likely that it is in fact leaking from there as well. I think I may be redoing the job and replacing all the seals to be safe.

I did follow the torque order, however I didn't have a torque wrench at the time. Is it possible to cause damage to the gasket by over torqueing the bolts?
