    Andre,
    Hi and how are you.
    This is common on high mileage Defenders and particularly in heavy worked vehicles as in your case.
    what has happened is the intermediate shaft between the gearbox and transfer case one or both housings have been worn. No matter how many times you replace those seals even the yellow Caterpillar ones the leak will always come back. because the housings are worn there is movement of the intermediate shaft which damages the seals.
    Resolution is to remove bother the box and transfer case strip them down and have the empty carcass machined out and have brass inserts fitted or aluminium weld up the orifices and have them machined back to spec.
    Alternatively replace the box or transfer case or both.

    Hello there Peter .Thank you for your prompt reply .Million dollar question now is what would this cost just to repair the two housings , never mind replacing the box and transfer case .😂
