    It is in a power steering rack. You can't access the back side to drive it out. The inside is about 1" in diameter.

    I assume there is a tool that pulls it out???

    Seal puller has different hook sizes on each end to remove most oil and grease seals.

  4. I just drill a small hole in the midlle of the seal taking care not to damage either the outside housing or the shaft, then screw in a self tapping screw once again taking care not to damage the housing or shaft then using pliers or side cutters carefully pry out the seal.This is only done this way if the shaft is still in place.
    I am doing this at present on my sons engine to get the front and rear crank seals out to replace them.
    Hope this helps.

    I have access to the spring side, not the metal side, I don't know if I can get a screw in it. The seal is only about 3/16" wide....

    It sits all the way in the back towards the lower part of vice.

    I have no idea what to do, I already have scratched the inside of the piston, not bad but still not something you want to do.
     
  6. Make up a hook type puller,like bend up the end of a rod,make it into a slide hammer set up and pull it out that way.
