Does anybody have experience of replacing the front crankshaft oil seal on the Rover V8 3.5 in a +8? I'm assuming this can get done with the engine in though there appears to be a chassis member going across the front of the crank pulley. Also, the Rover SDI manual (same engine) says use a special tool for both removal and replacement of the seal.

Will be really pleased to hear from anybody who has done this job

Thanks

John
