Default 2.2 impreza cam seal HELP!!!!

ok i have the timing belt off. i have the drivers side cam seal and crank seal replaced. on those there were covers to pop off and get to the seal. but on the passenger side crank i cant find a way to pull the cam seal out?!?!?!?!?! there doesnt seem to be a cover or bolts holding it on like the drivers side. i was considering taking the valve cover off to see if i can get to it from behind but i think thats a big longshot. theres got to be a way for this cap/cover to come out or the cam would never come out of the head... how do i get to this seal HELP!!!! i have been searching with no luck

I don't see any specific directions on how to remove that seal. It seems that it should just come off like the others, but I've never done the job, so what do I know? Ask Tim Sanderson or linsavy or someone smart like that

I always just use a pick tool and remove it with that. Works fine.

I use a thin tipped screwdriver that has a square shank. Tap it into the outer edge of the seal, then use a crescent wrench on the screwdrivers shank and twist. This will distort the seal and it should just about fall out. Be sure to use little emery cloth in the aluminum if you make any burrs. And a thin film on the outer edge of the new seal works great.

When you remove the seal, check the snout of the cam that's sticking out. If there is gunky oil on there then clean it off. If there is a groove then you should install the seal just a little bit further in. Don't burry it in there though, you'll cover a drain hole and certainly cause leaks.

Good luck.

Subaru Stars I have a question about 98 impreza 2.2 l

I just bought a lil 2.2 impreza 98 and i need to find out how easy or hard it is to do a crank seal gasket?? We have replaced the valve cover gaskets & the rocker seal and found exactly where the most oil is leaking from & we know its the Crankshaft seal gasket. Im also trying to locate a video on this...Can anyone help me???

1. How hard or easy is it to microsolder a capacitor on that is smaller than a flake of pepper? We don't know as we don't know your tools and skill level. YOU find out when YOU do it.
2. Youtube has a search feature get there.

Please don't bump a ages old thread....make your own, but before making your own, use critical thinking first.
