You will need to use this special tool to install the rear main seal. You should not seperate the sleave from the seal. If you try to just bang it on chances are it will leak again and you will be doing it again.
NOTE: The crankshaft rear seal may have a metal speedy sleeve. This sleeve must be removed before attempting to remove the seal.
CAUTION: Avoid scratching or damaging the oil crankshaft seal running surface during removal of the crankshaft rear oil seal.
