My tranny is out of the car after the throwout bearing & slave cylinder failed catastrophically on the highway last week (leaving the clutch stuck down so I couldn't drive). The throwout bearing disintegrated and the slave cylinder had galling and a ruptured seal. Oddly, the clutch & pressure plate were almost new and the flywheel freshly surfaced. PO didn't replace the slave with the clutch? New slave or throwout failed randomly? All the parts looked OEM...

In any case, while out I would like to fix the nasty leak at the shift shaft seal.

Has anyone removed the shift shaft seal effectively without special tools? Any techniques that will work and not bugger anything up?



thanks

I figured it out... I'm sure there's a better tool, but I just used a hook-shaped probe thing I had and yanked it out. It came out pretty easily and I only stabbed myself twice with the hook.

New one just slides on.

Might be possible with the tranny in the car, but access would make it not much fun. Easy to replace with the tranny out.

So I'm back on the road with all new clutch components, and it works well...
