New HDX oil on belt

Just bought a new 2014 HDX and at 155 miles the belt started slipping, oil dripping out of drain plug. Must be wet clutch seal? Ready this is fairly common? Is there any real fix to the problem? Thanks Everyone!

Welcome to the forum, best members here! Seems like I have seen several issues lately with oil leaking in the belt cover on HDX's. You should still be under warranty, and your dealer should be able to fix it. You are correct on the seal leaking. The Wet Clutch has a seal, and then the inner cover has a seal, and O-Ring. Most leaks occur at the inner cover. This is right behind the primary drive clutch. Unfortunately everything loads from the inside, and you need a press to remove/install the clutch housing. Let us know how you make out. Also on the freq. asked questions there is a couple of posts on the clutch/belt issues.

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels. Tonneau cover. 750 Big Bore Kit, Web Cam, and Rocker Arms.
