Alfa 156 gta gearbox oil dumped

Hi all!
New Year's Eve my gta dumped its gearbox oil and I had no drive.
This was after pulling away too quick at a junction and wheels spun.
Heard some clunking and had no drive.
I've checked engine oil and that ok so must be gearbox oil dumped and can see underneath it's coming from that area.
Has the seal gone on the main shaft on gearbox? And does box have to come out?
And new clutch needed ? Does oil soak clutch?
Thanks for any help

Welcome and hope you enjoy your GTA. Sounds like you've blown your diff though. Standard open diffs do not take GTA power well. Refit with Q2 diff and be happy.
