Transfer case leak

So, changed my oil yesterday and got ambitious and pulled my inspection cover off the transfer case to reseal it thinking there was a small chance that's where my leak may be coming from. Resealed the HELL out of it...turns out was not the leak (which I sort of suspected it was not).

Anyhow, here's some pics...appears to be coming from up past the red arrow, following the red line down and dripping off the bottom inspection cover bolt. Anyone have an idea of it's origin that's dealt with this before? It's not the end of the world, I top up at oil changes or before wheeling but would like to stop the drips on my driveway/garage if possible (and not a pain in the arse to fix).

It looks like your leak is coming from the intermediate shaft. Sometimes just replacing the o-ring will fix it, but often times the hole in the aluminum casing becomes oval and needs to be sleeved. Lots of good info in the following link. There is a lot to read, but there is intermediate shaft leak content...
