The designin theory may possibly be the same on the Laguna 2?
Hi yes your right the gaiter i think does not prevent oil from coming out but protects the seal from where the drive shaft enters the gear box there is also grease in this gaiter.If the the gaiter was to plit and lose its grease and dirt and small stones where to enter this area it may in time cause the seal to give in and start to loss oil .
