Crank seal.
« on: 26 April 2021, 08:45:26 »

About to renew the timing belt + pulleys and water pump on my X20XEV .
When in there I will change the front crank oil seal as it's weeping slightly.
Haynes manual is a bit short of detail on that wee job so can the seal be gently prised out once the pulley is off or does it have to be drilled , self tapper inserted and then pulled out via them  ?
Thanks

Front cranks seals I've come across can normally be easily prised out because either the crank pully had a large boss at the back where the seal sits or the seal sits on a spacer ring that can be turned round if worn.

Removing the seal is easy, getting a good new seal that fits right and goes on without leaking is another matter altogether on the X20XEV.

Try to get a sleeve to slide the seal over the crank as otherwise the seal spring can pop off the back of the seal. I used an old water bottle cut down
