Decided to tackle the rear main seal leak as the first winter project and see if I can finally resolve the concern. It's been an ongoing thing since day one, unfortunately. Maybe 4th time will be the charm? Need to remove the fan, shroud and crank pulley to access the front four pan bolts. Then,,,,,,,,,,,,,under the car. Once the center link is out along with the rest of the pan bolts, it slips out with millimeters to spare. I've got one of those Fast F ish one piece, double lip rear seals but not sure if it can be installed with the crank in place. I'm hoping it can but we'll see. If not, on to plan B.
