Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre
Removal of this seal is tricky.First let me say that if the filter will fit in it snug you are better off not changing it.If you nick or scratch the bore when removing this seal it is possible to cause a leak that can **** air and this is bad in so many ways.I have removed thousands of these type seals in the past 25 years and i have a very refined technique.You need a 24 oz hammer and a large standard screwdriver or flat tipped prybar.Do exactly what I say.the seal is shapped like a top hat.The lip that stops it from going in the case all the way is the brim.Place the tip of screwdriver on the lower side of the brim at a 45 degree angle.Do not get on the outside of the seal.Hit the screwdrive sharply so as to colapse the seal.Strike once the reposition and strike again.Never get outside the seal.Once you have colapsed the seal go to the other side and use the part you have driven in to pry the seal out.Dont get underneathe the sael.Always work on the seal and not the bore.Good luck!
