    Has anyone replaced the intermediate shaft seal on an SL2?

    I'm about to do this on my '96 SL2. The seal has an outer protective
    cage on it that makes using my seal tool not possible.

    Any ideas on seating the seal without causing the metal cage to pop
    out (what happened the last time I did this).

    Advice of a friend who is a Saturn tech to me when I did this job:

    Pull out the guard/protector and throw it away. Then replace the seal.

    I found it almost impossible to pull out that flimsy metal guard without
    damaging or bending it up anyway.

    Thanks Lane. That's a good one. No doubt some engineer thought he
    was creating the uberseal and in the field it reverts back to a
    conventional part.
