94 Ford Escort Transmission

I have a 1994 Ford Escort with a 1.9 litre motor and a 5 speed manual transmission. Recently i have noticed it leaking red transmission fluid, upon inspection i noticed it leaking where the gear shifter shaft enters the transmission. I took it to a transmission shop for a quote and the mechanic stated that the shifter seal was leaking and that the part itself was very cheap but to install it the entire transmission would have to be removed from the car and then torn apart to get to the problem totalling about 6 - 7 hours labour. The car is a little older and I am tight on money is there anyway for a cheaper solution?? Any help would be greatly appreciated

No the seal must be replaced. Seek a second opinion from another shop---they may be cheaper.
