this is a huge job. you can go about it 2 ways, one way is to pull the motor out, the other way, is to drop the subframe and pull the transmission out. either way, its a huge job. this is something that would take a trained professional who knows every nut and bolt on the car, a good 8-10 hours to complete. if your willing to do the job yourself, the seal is located on the end of the crankshaft behind the flywheel/flexplate. you will need to remove the flywheel in order to get to the seal. the seal is mounted in a removeable plate.
