SOURCE: Manual Transmission Filter?
The Borg Warner T-5 manual transmission has no filter. Assuming the leak is not really the rear main seal of the engine leaking, which is more likely, then it leaking from the front of the transmission. You will need to drop the transmission to get to the front seal on the first motion shaft. Unless you are really mechanically inclined or have a friend who is, leave it to a good shop.

if you do not have the tools or the knowledge it is better to leave it to a qualified mechanic because if it is not done properly they have to fix it but if you do it you could create a lot of heartache for your hip pocket

I'm pretty sure the clutch *has* to be against the flywheel, otherwise if it was directly connected the input and lay shaft would constantly spin even if the wheels were disconnected, which isn't the point of the clutch. Probably the arm for the clutch is just further along the hydraulic line at the back, rather than having it up the front. Open it the way you usually would as I can't see it working any other way.

Disconnect the plug underneath to drain fluid, look in your service manual to find the capacity and viscosity. There is a plug in the side of the transmission as well that is the filler plug, however it is more convenient to pour through the shifter once you remove it. If you use the filler plug method you will have to attach a tube to the oil bottle and squeeze it into the transmission as there may not be ample room to tilt the bottle and use gravity.

Testimonial: "Thank you for this tip. The manual does not show capacity for the transmission but I found on other forums that the amount seems to be 4.8 liters."
