Easy fix

That explains why they sell anodized parts for this clutch slave, the bore was scratched and the o-ring was shreded. But it was a very simple fix. To remove it you hold the 5mm allen inside the 17mm nut. Remove the nut then take the cover off. A snap ring on the back side and the cylinder will pop out with a little force. Must line up the holes in the cover with the cylinder. Some fine scotch brite and a new O-ring = not leaking.

Does the large cover need to be removed to repair the o-ring or whatever is causing the leak behind the small ROTAX cover?
I wish ours was that simple, we have a probable bad bearing causing the whole clutch assembly to move around, and rub on the case. That galled everything up, heated the case to the point of melting the formed rubber seal around the cover, causing a good leak of oil.
The basket and plates all had burrs, and very hard to get the plates out of the basket. Very loose shaft. Probably bearings on both sides bad. Worried about the trans gears now as well.
There was no indication that anything was going on. All quiet, and running good, until it leaked oil.
