How-To: 1.4L Gen 1 front crankshaft seal replacement

9317 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  diablo75
I just replaced my crankshaft seal and made a video of the whole process. I looked around for other videos but the best one never showed any of the work, just a couple progress points in time with no visual of the removal or insertion of the seal itself. So I wanted to make something that would show someone everything.

Yeah, sorry, it fixed it. Haven't had that chirp sound come back at all.
Did you have issue lining up the pulley with the hexagon ring inside the motor when reenistalling the pulley
I didn't, but a few others have. There is a plate that moves loosely and drives the oil pump. It's "looseness" is normal. You might have to use something like a skinny flatblade to lift it and make way for the balancer shaft to be reinserted. The plate is driving by the shaft which in turn drives the oil pump.
