There's a silly design flaw with the early push button propshaft where a hole allows the oil out. Have a search on here as it's a fairly easy fix.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

I thought that was the intermediate shaft between the gearbox and the transfer box, letting the Gearbox oil out?

This picture is the rear prop shaft isn't it?
The shaft seal under the transfer box output flange i guess. Should be most wet on the transfer box by the flange if so.
The oil drops fly around at speed making everything aft of the leak look like a disaster.

Mine leaks a bit btw as mine is a 2005. later 2009-10 or so got a new design.
Tried to seal it with silicone but not a complete success..
I just refill for now while looking for a new(er) shaft.

2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 235 BFG MT, 2" Trailmaster, 17%/87% high/low gears.
