Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!
Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.
Any more questions --- reply to firstname.lastname@example.org

SOURCE: how to remove rear main seal
All the data that I can find on this says that its a one piece seal. You can find out for sure by having a parts store pull one up to look at. If its two pieces' you'll probably have to remove the pan, one piece means removing trans and flywheel. So if it needs a clutch now is the time to do them both. I hope this helps you and good luck.

First of all, be certain that the leak is in fact from that seal. many leaks travel to that area.
To change the seal is fairly involved, you need to pull the trans and flywheel. There are some specialzed tools involved. Do you have manual or automatic? Manual requires clutch plate alignment on re assembly, by the way , if manual, be sure to change the release bearing and pilot bearing at minimum. Commonly it would make sense to change the clutch during this process....you're already all the way in there..
