my 34 year old original tranny (Esprit S2) is weeping so I picked up the required seals and what a shock to pay $250 for some paper and small rubber bits...thanks Citroen

Anyone experienced in resealing an S2 tranny...what surprises am I in for getting this thing out and resealed?

Ouch!!!!

just take off both diff. axle carriers. Leave all shims in place in gearbox.
You need some big tools to get to the nut on the axle. Size 44 to 46 mm.
Than pull of the housing. Please beware ,outer bearing will stay on the axle.
You need a special flat pully to get of the outer ring of the bearing and than you can remove the old oilseal. Check the counterplate for the seal for wear.

Place the outerring with nylon ring and balls back in housing. Place new seal, not to deep.
Put back the axle with press and tighten the nut good. Do not forget to secure that nut with the little bolt inside.

if any questions........................

cheers,
