There is a slow leak of AT fluid at the tailshaft seal in my '04 LTD DC.

Is this beyond the capability of a moderately decent home mechanic, or is it something that requires shop tools and specialties?

And what might it cost to have the dealership repair it? Guesstimates and experience-based reports are appreciated.

I have done this repair to an older jeep I had. I removed the driveshaft and used a seal puller and replaced the seal. That said, I cannot speak from experience about toyota transmissions. anyone else??

Ok you can repair it yourself and I've attached a copy of the shop manual outlining the process. I hope this helps you out. The same thing happened to me when my truck was new and a tsb covered it under warranty.

^ +1 It's not a hard job to do at all. Just make sure that you determine where the leak is actually coming from. I have seen, on more than one ocassion ,that the leak was really coming from the front yoke on the driveshaft and not the tail shaft seal.
