Lower Timing Cover Seal

How much of a nightmare is it going to be to replace a lower timing cover seal on a '92 F22a?

It looks like there's no way to gain access to the timing cover without pulling the motor (or removing the driver's fender and such)?

No just remove the top and middle cover then your going to have to remove the crank pulley and mounting hardware

Re: Lower Timing Cover Seal

You can do it, it's just a bitch. Honestly, you might as well do a timing belt and water pump replacement if you're going to be there. Have to pull the crankshaft pulley. Why are you replacing the seal? Mines destroyed and IDGAF!

^x2 also if your replaceing the seal is it because of and oil leak? If so you might as well replace the crankshaft sea if its leaking...

Re: Lower Timing Cover Seal

I believe the crank shaft seal is the problem by the way the leaking oil is sprayed. It's a $5 part, but will take a massive amount of effort, cussing and wrench throwing to replace it. Not long ago, I replaced the two accessory belts on the car and really struggled fitting my hands between the timing case and inner fender.

Remove the driver side motor mount it will give you a little more room to work it yeah it sucks but has to be done, especially if oil got on to the timing belt

Re: Lower Timing Cover Seal

No need to pull off the fender. Nor the motor, unless your hands are REALLYYYY fat and can't fit in there.

Like mentioned, since you gotta take the crank pulley off, with is a PITA in itself, it would behoove you not to do the timing/balancer belts, tensioners, and all related seals that are under there. And that motor mount needs to come out anyway to pull the t-belt outta there since its wrapped around the mount.
