Transmission seal

Has anyone else had the seal on the back end of your automatic transmission just pop out? Mine did and i went to take the bolts out to take off the drive shaft and it seems near impossible to get the last 2 out if you have any ideas on how to get them out please let me know

The 4 bolts on the rear differential?
Should just unscew

Block front tire
Shift trans to Neutral
Jack up ONE wheel on rear
Turn drive shaft to get better angle on remaining bolts
Put trans back in Park

You should mark the one hole so drive shaft goes back on the same way

All transmissions have a vent, maybe yours is clogged up which allows pressure to build up inside and pushes out the seal.

Vent is at the top rear but has a metal loop that runs up to top bell housing and back down to drivers side of trans
