if you are talking about the seal at the rear of the tranny where the drive shaft goes into than it is fairly easy.
1.put something behind both tires so the vehicle does not try to roll away when you complete step 2.
2.take the drive shaft down.
3. take a flat head screw driver and a hammer.
4.take the screw driver and put it in the crack where the seal and tranny meet.
5.you will need to tap the screw driver into the crack until you can get a good grip on the seal with the screw driver.
6 you will need to pry out on the seal until you see it move.
7.do this all the way around until you can get the seal out.
8.make sure nothing is in the way of you putting in the new seal
9.put a little bit of tranny fluid on the new seal.
10 put the seal in place and lightly tap the seal. into the tranny.
11. put the drive shaft back together.

Yes ,regardless of which seal is used as you have to loosen main bearings so the crank can be moved down as the seals are crush type and you wont have the clearance to fit the new one,Split seals (2 piece)are the easiest to fit without moving the crank too much.The one piece seal also means trans removal.As far as removing trans completely you may be able to move it back while its being held up by a trolley jack and only pull it back far enough to give you the clearance needed.Autos are far easier than manuals.If its the rope type seal a special tool is used to fit them and its not a tool that is sold just anywhere as that type of seal kept noahs ark from sinking and havnt been used in engines for many many years.
