I was changing the oil on my 06 elise yesterday, when I noticed this ring which seems to have come unseated from the transaxle. I suspect this is a driveshaft seal? Should I be concerned? Is there a method to reseat this?

Thanks,
Mike

Thats really just a dust shield... i think if i didnt want a big project that I would either epoxy it back on if it can or cut it off.

That is a seal shield that is supposed to be pressed onto the end of the C/V shaft to protect the transmit axle seal.
You can try and tap it back in place. Maybe using some red locktight if it feels loose on the shaft.
