Hey guys found a leak on my rear crank, (pretty sure thats where its coming from) its a leak athe back of the engine near bellhousing, anyway id replace the crank seal myself but i do not have the tools to drop a gearbox out to get to the seal, Im just wanting to know approx how much it would cost to get it replaced, it doesnt seem like that much work just a pain in the a***, can anyone give me a rough cost from your average mechanic so i dont get overcharged
Cheers

Make sure its not the back of the rocker cover leaking down the block as this is common.
I think I saw somone quoted 450 or so.
Personally I would spend that on a good 1/2inch socket set and spanners.

Or you could spend a hundred bucks on a socket set and a few dollars on some 17 and 19mm spanners to crack the diff to driveshaft... (15 and 17 maybe)... And then you could have three fifty to spend on smack.
