    first, jack up the car and remove the front driver side tire. Turn the crank to top dead center. have a buddy side under the car and remove the flywheel cover, have him hold a long flat head screwdriver in the teeth of the flywheel to keep it from moving. while you use a breaker bar to loosen the crank pulley. next loosen the alternator, power steering and air conditioner so the belts can be slid off the crank pulley. next remove the crank pulley. Now move to the top of the car and start removing the timing belt cover, there is a top and a bottom cover, both need removed You will now need to loosen the timing belt tensioner and the crank angle sensor, so you can remove the timing belt. after the timing belt is removed. Remove the distributor, Make sure that you use a permanent marker to mark the the angles that the distributor is mounted, so you can retain the correct timing. next pull the spark plug wires out of the valve cover, and remove the valve cover. if you car is vtec you will need to remove the lost motion assembly. If you dont have vtec you dont have that assembly. now pull the rocker arm assembly off so you can get to your cam shaft. Remove the camshaft from the car and take the cam pulley off the camshaft. Right behind the cam pulley is the camshaft sprocket seal. when you replace the seal with a new one make sure you grease up the inside of the seal. Then reinstall

    why would he pull the cam in order to replace that seal!? its quite unnecessary to say the least. all you have to do is pull the cam gear off the cam while its still in the car, and pry out the old seal with an awl, or even a flathead screwdriver. lube up and pop in the new one, and if it gives you any trouble tap it in with a rubber mallet till its sitting flush.

    Tear easily? have you ever done this personally to vouch for how "easily" they tear. unless you're beating the shit out of it theres no reason one should tear. Ask anyone who knows what the hell they're talking about and they will tell you on some engines removing the cam for a cam seal is unnecessary. A friend of mine who is a tech at germain toyota does it this way on customers cars, and i personally watched him do this on his own car not even 2 weeks ago. I suppose with your logic you would recommend removing the crank in order to replace its oil seal too right?

    Telling someone to tear down the top half of their engine isnt any better.

    Set the engine to TDC, remove cam gear, use a drywall screw to remove the bad seal. Do this by screwing it into the seal. Grab the screw with pliers and pul while wiggling. This method doesnt risk scouring the aluminum around the seal. With assembly moly based lubed gently push the new seal into place.

    I do this all the time and never have a problem doing it this way.
