Bumping an old thread, as this seems like a reasonable one to ask in...

I'm fairly certain the cam seal on the front of the passenger side cam is leaking on my EJ22. (I'm getting a burning oil smell when I drive, and when I took a look under the car the other day, it appears to be oil coming from the passenger side (RH side) of the timing cover and blowing back onto the exhaust header.) Is it possible to replace that cam seal without pulling the camshaft? Or do I need to pull the cam to properly get to that seal?
