Look around the seal where the CV shaft comes out of the transaxle is a likely spot.

Depends on engine size and which trans. is in it. There can be a couple trans. being used.
Not a simple job, axle has to come out and stub of axle has to be inspected for wear / damage at the seal area and also the bushing in the trans. has to be checked to see if it's worn allowing too much ''wobble'' on the axle stub shaft.
