if the dealership is putting in a new or remanufactured transmission, the seals are part of the transmission case and should be new. Why do you ask? Is it leaking? If so, take it back ASAP.

Yes, they discovered the leak while performing an oil change yesterday. This is the recommendation word for word, "driver's side axle needs to be replaced $259.50 plus tax, $197.50 plus tax to replace axle seal if not doing axle, $82.99 if replacing axle at the same time". They installed a used transmission with similar mileage to what the former one had with a year warranty on parts and labor. The invoice date is June 9, 2015. The car sat there for 4 months while they located the replacement.

OK, so installing a used part is always a crap shoot, so you have to be looking for things like this. No way of knowing it would leak before installing though to answer your question. So I don't see an issue with replacing the seal if in fact it is leaking.

Ok. My question is, shouldn't this be covered under the 1 year parts and labor warranty? Not at my expense.

I don't know the full details of the warranty. What does the contract say? That would be between you and the dealer or shop that performed the work.

1 year on parts and labor. They're taking care of everything. Once I pointed out the invoice date, they couldn't argue because I'm still in warranty. Thank you for confirming which seals should be changed when replacing a transmission. They did NOT change that seal.
