Rear crankshaft seal replacement, 2.25ltr petrol, 3 bearing


Recommended Posts

I've removed gearbox, clutch, flywheel, flywheel housing and the lower crankshaft oil seal retainer. The top oil seal retainer won't budge. Is there a trick to this? Something I'm not seeing perhaps? Any tips regarding the use of silicone sealant in this area would also be appreciated.

You've not really picked the best way to do the job and have it all seal when it's reassembled.

It's enough of a pain when the engine is out and sitting on its nose.

From what I remember, with the bolts out of the top retainer, a little percussive motion with a soft hammer should see it start moving.

Proper cork T seals for the rear main bearing cap are a good idea too.
