The links work the tools won't.

No special tools needed to remove the seal,I personally use a small indexable seal puller and then a small rubber mallet to install the seal.

You can also do this job without removing the radiator,if you have the mechanical fan then it must be removed along with the fan shroud but if not nothing but the serp belt needs to be removed.I replaced my front crank seal without even opening the hood,granted I have a bit more room to work from underneath.

Do you mean an ordinary seal puller like this?



What about reinstalling the balancer/crank pulley - any special tools needed for that?

Yeah but one with a indexable head works better since it is a tight spot to get in.As far as installing the pulley back on you can either use a rubber mallet(most difficult way),buy a longer crank bolt to start it(stock one is to short),or buy the tool set in the link below...............
