Replace front crankshaft oil seal

Recommended Posts

The front crankshaft oil seal is leaking and need to be replaced. Is it possible to replace the seal without remove the engine from the engine bay? The job has to be done by a garage anyway.

 

Lotus Esprit V8 1997.

You will need to remove the engine for this procedure.  On the up-side, it will give you a chance to check for other jobs at the same time (e.g  fuel tanks, exhaust manifold studs)
