Honda Accord/Civic/Prelude 1973-1983 Repair Guide

Rear Main Seal



The rear oil seal is installed in the rear main bearing cap. Replacement of the seal requires the removal of the transaxle, flexplate or flywheel and clutch housing, as well as the oil pan. Refer to the appropriate sections for the removal and installation of the above components. Both the front and rear main seal are installed after the crankshaft has been torqued, in the event it was removed. Special drivers are used.
