I have read all the posts on doing this. The only thing the post doesn't specify is how hard the new seal is supposed to be to go in.
I have a 2002 three speed auto jeep wrangler. I think I narrowed the tranny leak to the shift shaft. I did everything the posts I've read to a T. Which actually has been very simple up until now. I've already distorted one seal trying to get it in. This thing doesn't want to go back in. I tried tapping it with a small hammer. It was lopsided so I pulled it out. So then I tried running a bolt through it and putting same size washers on each side and wedging it into place that way. Nope.. that bent my brand new seal. So now it's back to OReilly for a new 8 dollar seal to bend. So what am I missing here? How do I get this back in place?
I'm getting better at all this stuff though... This home repair go around I've only threatened to sell my jeep two times!!
