Hi there good evening to you and sorry for the delayed response

Ok the front crank seal labour time is 0.8 hours (just over half an hours labour ) most garages will charge 1 hours labour

Theory is around £20 from memory but would need to clarify the exact price

The rear crank seal is a bigger job as the gearbox needs to be removed thus the labour time is 5 hours

The rear crank seal is around £40 from memory but again I would need to clarify the exact price
