When removing the bellhousing on my Au today a little bit of water came out and there's also a bit inside the spigot bearing. It's not coolant and there's no evidence of a welsh plug leak.

Any ideas?

Washed your engine lately? What's the inspection/dust cover like? Could some moisture have found it's way in thru there?

Cheers
