My gearbox is leaking oil probably from the selector area.
My question is simple. Do I need to drag the gearbox out to change the seal or is it possible to just drain the oil and change the seal with the gearbox in the car?

Selector seal is still a available from dealer simple change really disconnect linkage pull would seal out with pair grips find a deep socket that will fit over shaft and knock new one in will drop some oil but not hideous amount if you do it quickly

As above - thankfully a relatively simple job. Try avoid scoring the area that the seal sits against (inner and outer) whilst pulling out the old seal tho
