Transfer case leaking from FIPG

Has anybody dealt with this before? Looks like the very bottom of my TC has a leak where the two sides meet and the red FIPG sticks out. It's torn off in a few places and i believe that's where I'm leaking from. I cleaned everything down good to make sure it isn't the output... What's the best route to take assuming my FIPG has failed? Remove and reseal? Buy a reman?

I will tell you that dropping the tcase, splitting it and re-sealing it is a giant pain. I would check the torque specs on the bolts holding the two halves together first. Make sure nothing got loose.

I did use a gear oil stop leak in a case years ago and it worked, but I would consider that to be a bandaid.

When mine leaked (all fluid would come out in a month or less), I bought all the OEM gaskets (4 distinct ones I think) to replace them all, once and for all. Never leaked again. Luck.
