1.remove the front driveshaft
2.remove the yoke from the t case with a large socket ..30mm?
use whatever you have to your disposal to remove the seal at this point. you will most likely need to dig into the seal with a pair of pliers to get it out. just try not to damage the seal contacts on the shaft or the aluminum bore on the case. the seal uses a steel core coated in rubber, so its not much of a headache to remove as its not in there to tight, using a punch and hammer to collapse the seal core will make it easier to remove but it will still be a bit of a pain since the case is not apart and you cant just knock it out..
once its removed..
3. clean contacts
4. lubricate new seal with vasiline and set back on shaft
5. make sure its evenly installed! gently begin tapping it in at the edges until it sits flush at the bottom of the bore.
then install the yoke, nut and shaft.
use and impact wrench to remove the yoke nut, or you will need to use a wrench on the yoke to keep it from turning will you use a socket wrench on the nut. dont jam it in 4x4 and wrench on the nut in park as this may stress internal components
use something like a larger pipe to set the seal evenly, something that will go over the shaft and contact the seal completely then tapping the pipe from the back will set the seal nicely
replace both seals at the same time, the rear wont be far behind but uses a similar method of removal..
