So I was installing my EST downpipe and do88 FMIC and noticed oil all over the angle gear. I've read that this was a common problem with our cars. Just looking for some experienced insight. 2010 s40 R-design m66 awd. Thanks.

Yep, mine does this too. Until I see drops on the floor though I aint gonna waste time replacing them. Dirt Collection is directly correlated to the amount of fluid lost. Looks like yours, like mine, seeps, and doesn't leak.

Once I have to tear it down it's gonna cost $$$ to fix and do right (inserting seals isn't hard as you can usually do it with a socket or with your fingers) but at best its $10 worth of seals, at worst it's $$$$$$ and replacing your angle gear unit and/or coupler.
