In your engine you have two main seals one is at the front of the engine where all of your pulleys are and the other is at the rear where the transmission is bolted if it is your rear seal than you have o remove the tranny which is a fairly large job but if it is the front sealthat is leaking than you only have to take the harmonick balancer off of the crankshaft with a three jaw puller and pop the seal out and put the new one in with a little oil on the rubber for lubrication
