The service manual suggests 8+ hours for transmission R&R...that's if you're a honda tech w/ proper tools, lift, trans jack, etc. I rebuilt my trans last fall and it took me about double that, working by myself, on jackstands. Not terribly difficult if you're a good wrench, but definitely not fun.Grrrr...Stupid copy/paste. I'm trying to work and post a thread. Not good.
I wanted to ask if anyone has replaced their rear main seal. I just got a quote for $500 to replace that and their front seal as well. Didn't sound too bad. Thinking of doing it on my own too. Wanted some opinions on how hard it is to do.
I've removed-replaced (or re-installed) a couple trannies in my time (conventional & transaxle), and my older brain still took only 2 milliseconds to come to the same conclusion.....If somebody quoted me $500 to replace front and rear main seals, I'd think about that for about 2 microseconds before I handed over the keys! (assuming a trustworthy shop)
