I really don't think so, could be wrong but none as far as I'm aware. Consider yourself extremely lucky that you've got a sign that it's failing, and not an outright failure like some others have had.

It sucks I know, and it's not going to be nice finding 2,500, but when it's done you know you've done it properly and it's saved from going again.

Sorry to hear

Why is a dripping crankshaft seal 2.500?

And did you understand why a intermediateshaft don't drip? Or what the difference between an intermediate shaft (bearing) and a crankshaft seal is? Maybe you should investigate into that.

Regards, Markus

I've assumed you've taken a look at the actual bearing itself and concluded that it's got a leak. If not then yeah, follow Smallblock's advice.
