Default lexus rx300 2.4L


Help!!!!!
I had observed a leak on my torque converter outer casing and I was told that my torque converter seal is gone. I replaced the seal twice but it still leaks from the bottom 2 screws. The leak is very small but it's there so I am worried..... Once I open the small access panel on the side of torque converter housing and try to see or feel the leak it's not felt or seen.
I don't know what to do or how to approach this problem as I am in African region and cannot find any authorized Lexus dealer to talk to.... Any suggestions that why its leaking even after 2 times seal change and what could possibly be wrong will be welcome.... Seals that were put were genuine.
Thanks

The snout of the torque converter might be worn or damaged.

Assuming that is transmission fluid, and that is the area it is definitely leaking from.
