Try using high mileage oil and lucas additive...If leak is not too bad, that may soften and swell seal enough to stop it. To do seal correctly engine must come out.
Try it...It may help!!!

Motor out is not needed.
You need to disconnect the drive shafts, put a jack under the back of the motor, and put a trolley jack under the box before you undo it.
You do not say if it is auto or manual, removing the box is slightly different depending on which one you have.
Face the trolley jack so it can roll backwards easily, remove anything that may be stopping the box coming down and back. eg: exhausts, gear linkages/stick ( from in the cab if manual)
reverse and neutral light wires, oil cooler pipes.
You will need to lower the box with a couple of easily accessible bolts still in place at the bell housing. Do this slowly with someone watching the engine fan to radiator gap etc, and make sure you do not do more damage getting it out.
Now set both jacks to take equal weight, making sure the box is balanced and secured to the trolley jack before you undo the last bolts.
It is all about balance, alignment and going very slowly with the separation.
Do not rush it. Be very slow and calm. Sudden movements can bend the gearbox shaft, damage your torque converter, or worse, trap you.
When everything is right and secure, you will be able to shake the box by hand and pull it back.
You may have to adjust the height of either or both jacks to take it out cleanly, being very careful of how much you allow the back of the motor to drop and what it may contact or stretch and break as you do so.
Take care and work safe. :)

Firstly, make sure the seal you fitted is the correct one, sounds silly but I have been given the wrong seals by parts people. It pays to check. Next, if you have fitted the seal correctly, and made sure that the seal is in flush with the housing, then it may be that the shaft is worn and may have a groove in it which was caused by the old seal. Pull the shaft out again and check for this groove in the shaft. If it does have the groove, you will need to find and purchase a steel sleeve which is fitted over the worn section of the shaft and ensures a nice clean and tight surface for the new seal to run on, thus stopping the leak.. Here in australia these sleeves are called "speedy Sleeves" and are available from any bearing shop and auto parts stores. The sleeve has a removable step on it which is used to tap the sleeve onto the shaft ( with a small hammer) and is then removed by twisting it sideways with pliers or sidecutters. The sleeve has a scored edge to help with this. Once you have removed the step, carefully clean up the edge with very fine grade rubbing paper ( wet and dry or fine emery cloth) with Oil applied to it to remove any sharp edges BEFORE you refit the shaft into the gearbox. This ensures that the new sleeve does not damage the seal. Re-assemble everything and test drive. As long as the seal is correct and fitted correctly and the sleeve is fitted correctly this will stop the leak. Have fun..
