Oil leak again.

I've had the rear main seal changed twice already and now the dealership I goto has been having trucks returning after the same fix. They went further into one and have determined its further than that. I spoke to the service manager and he mentioned the midplate. Have any of you techs run into this? Is this the same as the bedplate? Maybe I didint hear him clearly. Aguy in parts I know also said something about the cradle. It's my understanding I will have the third truck they perform this on. Should I have any concerns? Can one of you knowlegable techs out there help me out with some info?

Thanks in advance.

what they are refering to is the bed plate leaking and yes that is not that uncommon , very extensive job , make sure you ask them to replace front and rear cover gaskets also with this repair, they will also have to replace rear seal again with this repair
