Question All Tiptronic possible leak points?

Before I can conclude the point of my tiptronic fluid leak, can someone please tell me in addition to the following possible leak point, is there any other possible place that the tiptronic fluid can leak out? I noticed it only leaks after the car is moved.

1) Drain plug
2) Fill plug
3) Pan gasket
4) Output shaft seals

THANKS!!

Although it is good to have a game-plan, a person can spend a lot of energy troubleshooting a problem in one's mind, without actually looking at the problem. The car will need to go on a lift, or up some ramps, in-order to find the source of your leak.

It is possible too that you might have a leak on one of the lines that go to/from the transmission cooler. In my experience with Audi Tiptronic transmissions, the source of the leak is usually the output shaft seal/seals that leak. The other four areas are possible; but again, you will need to get under the car and look for the source of your leak.

If it's leaking between the engine and trans you have a front pump seal, pump o-ring or pump bolt seals. Output shafts leak differential oil not trans fluid. Outside trans oil cooler lines are on top on tranny down to the left side.

It turned out to be a leaky pan gasket so I had the shop perform tranny fluid service.
