Question HELP! Can not get axles seals out of STI 6-speed.

Ok so I bought a JDM V7 none DCCD 6-speed and I need to replace the front axle seals as they are both in bad shape.

But they will not come out! I bent my seal puller trying to get them out.

And they have not moved!

How do I get them out?
I read something about having to remove the sundial cover and pull them out from the inside? But I ca no t seam to fins any specs for how I go about this.

Thanks.

A clear photo would help but yea that might be what you are running into. The earlier side retainers were designed that the oil seals install/remove from the inside. So the side retainers need to be marked, removed, new seal, reinstall to mark.

I just went to the dealer with pics and they confirmed that the side retainers must be removed to replace the seals.
This sucks.
I'll post pics when I get to my computer.
Thanks.

It's not really that bad as long as you follow the FSM. No need for pics, it's pretty certain your situation.
Also you can change to the revised side retainers that allow external R&R of the axle seals. You would have to potentially reset the teeth positions (gear backlash and bearing preload) though. And buy the new side retainers of course. Best of luck.

Now I just need to get the FSM info on this so I can get it done.

The new seals will be here tomorrow around 11am I hope.

Any one have a link to the FSM info I need?

This is the inside of it:

The seal sits on the inside. Mine was messed up too

Outside of it:

You need to use something that can be wedged in between the spaces and turn it
