The rear gearbox seal has started to fling a fair bit of oil around the floor pan in front uni of my car (LJ XU1 - M20/21) the seal would be around 20 years old and from sitting idle during this time would have hardened up I guess, and now I'm driving it a fair bit its started to leak.. Please advise in detail the process of removing this seal and where do I purchase a quality replacement seal?

before you replace the seal
check that there is no play in the universal joints(front in particular)
and check the rear bushing in the gearbox is ok.if its not there is a ford bush that is longer that will fit
(Just grab the tailshaft and see if it wobbles about)

Thanks for this great advice. I suspected there would be a trick to removing the old one.
