Re: REAR MAIN

I think you have to drop the transmission and then lower the oil pan in the back to get to it.

Re: REAR MAIN

yes you have to remove the trans. and flywheel. lower the rear of the oil pan to replace the rear main seal. it's not very hard, but you it has to be done right or it will leak again. If you have a 5 speed go ahead and replace the clutch while your in their. It's about a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10 on how hard it is. It is an all day job for your first one.

Re: REAR MAIN

its also a one piece seal thats on a plate that bolts onto the rear of the engine block. like stated before u gotta drop the tranny and remove the flywheel and clutch, then after u take the flywheel out u will see a plate that surrounds the rear of the crank that has 6 bolts holding it onto the rear of the block. remove the bolts and kind of wiggle it away from the engine and it will come off. knock the seal off and tap the new one it then lube up the seal in the inside with a little oil and gently push it on the back of the crank and bolt that piece back on. u dont have to tighten it like crazy, id get the torque specs to be safe. i did mine and it wasnt too bad, the seal was a piece of cake once everything was out the way. if u are doing it yourself make sure u have someone there that can help u out when u need it
