Shift Shaft Seal..Pics

I am trying to change the shift shaft seal and I am having an extremely difficult time changing out the seal. The PP tech article says to use a screwdriver to gently pry the seal out, but I cannot get it out, I can only get pieces of the rubber seal out. I started to gouge the sides so I stopped. I tried a seal puller, screwdriver and anything else I could think of. The new seal is in the pic below the shaft housing. Does anyone have any ideas.

Thanks,
Rod

The OEM original seal has a metal covering and this thing does not like to come out.

First - You need to support the shift console in a vise.

2nd - If it will not just pop out, then you need to take the screw driver and a hammer and hammer the blade into the plastic under the lip and then use the screw driver as a lever. It may not pop out and you may just get a piece of plastic. Move aound about 30 degrees and repeat. Keep doing this until it does pop out. It will. It is a pain in the butt.

Clean the surfaces, maybe using a little Scotch-Brite pad, lightly oil the new seal and install.

James:

Thank you, got it out and installed the new seal. Where can I buy the O-ring that goes on the backside of the shift console?

Again thanks.

Go to your FLAPS, they usually have an O-ring box with just about everything. If not, Maybe home depot.

I'm sure Pelican can get you one. I usually use a kit since I have the trannies out and I do all of the seals at once. And a little bit more...
