The rear main oil seal is installed in a separate housing on the rear of the block. Replacement of the seal requires the removal of the transaxle, flywheel and clutch housing, as well as the oil pan.

Both the front and rear main seal are installed after the crankshaft has been tightened, in the event it was removed. Special drivers are used.
