Crankshaft rear oil seal - renewal
Note: New flywheel/driveplate bolts must be used on refitting.
1 Remove the flywheel/driveplate and the engine adapter plate.
2 Extract the seal using an oil seal removal tool if available. It may also be possible to remove the oil seal by drilling the outer face and using self-tapping screws and a pair of grips.
3 Clean the oil seal housing, then carefully wind a thin layer of tape around the edge of the crankshaft to protect the oil seal lip as the seal is installed.
4 Ideally, the new oil seal should be installed using a tool similar to that shown (see illustration).
