Leaking Gearbox Gasket

Hi All,

The gearbox gasket (pictured) has started to go on my 1988 Fiat Panda 1000CL with the leak gradually worsening over the past few weeks (you can see the frayed bit of the gasket poking out from under the gearbox in the images).

Just a quick one - is it possible to seal this things with the sealants I've seen on the internet (I've linked one I found below - works for paper gaskets, as this one is). Or is this a bigger job and I'll have to disassemble the gearbox and drive shaft cover to fully replace the old gasket....?

Thanks!


EDIT: Found cause of leak is loose CV boot Jubilee clip which has leaked oil down to make it look as if the gasket is decayed. Tightening CV boot clip until the leak stops now!
