Which side did it happen on, as I think I've damaged my driveshaft seal on the nearside when I was trying to do the bottom wishbones the other day, and it dumped a fair amount of gearbox oil over the floor.
If you google "156 v6 gearbox strip" you'll see a few photos from when someone totally stripped down the 156 v6 gearbox, and you'll see where the seals are, and from looking at them, its 4 bolts.
I'm still trying to find out how to remove the nearside inner driveshaft cup from the gearbox, whether it just slides in, or its held by something such as a circlip
My eLearn disc doesn't have much information on it either!
Hope you get it sorted though, I've had to go back to my trusty 306 diesel workhorse for the time being until the weather gets better
