To remove piston safely use the brake pedal to press out piston. You will need to remove the pads so it can do this. You will need a container to catch the fluid when the piston comes out. Clean the the piston with a fine polishing cloth 600 grit or higher so as not to leave scratches, replace piston if it pitted or burred. Clean inside of caliper, remove inside seal with dental type tool. Roll in the new seal, position same as old one. install new outter dust boot if equipped with one. Lubricate seal and leading edge of piston with brake fluid. Slide piston into calipier. You will need to make sure it is started straight and then use a C-clamp to compress the piston all the way in. Never ever use any oils or grease any any internal brake parts because it will cause seal failure. Clean parts are critical, but again , no petroleum products. Good luck

SOURCE: There is oil leaking from
Removing the cover to replace the gasket will not harm any of the electrics. I would try just tightening the case screws to see if that will take care of the problem. Worst case is you get a new gasket. Use an impact driver to remove and/or tighten the screws. The web site below looks like the gasket is in stock. Now would be a good time to replace the shift shaft seal. That could be the oil leak anyway. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
