Have a 307 (2004) manual 1.4 petrol thats developed a small oil leak. I am reliably informed that its coming from the gearbox seal of the driveshaft.

Having just completed an engine oil and filter change on it, I'm feeling full of confidence to give things a go myself or at least give instructions to hubby :lol: (need to save the pennies these days!).

Is this possibly a diy job or should it be left to the 'professionals' ?

Non trivial, definitely one for the pro's. Get a trusted garage to check it out and give you an estimate first.
The problem with gearbox driveshaft seals is that (in my experience) they generally only wear out if the driveshaft bearing has worn (the play in the bearing allows the driveshaft to move and ruin the seal). This is why you need someone you trust to check out the gearbox properley.
Good luck :)

You need to be certain that it is coming from the driveshaft seal, as leaks from elswhere can look like a driveshaft leak. It's only an hour or so work to change but it's not really a job for diy unless you're used to pulling out driveshafts and the like
