Auto tranny shaft seal removal tool

Hi,

It seems like the control shaft seal on my transmision is leaking, part # 24501423606. The TIS calls for tool BMW 24 5 360, which screws into the seal so you can pull it out. Does anyone know where I can get a tool like that?

Thanks

Pancho - I'll reply to your email as well -

I'll need to look into this with my OE tool supplier on Monday.

If anyone is looking to do this it seems fairly easy.

Here's a link to instructions: http://www.justanswer.com/bmw/309ei-...r-linkage.html

Anyone have a price or source for the special tool needed? It's #24 5 360.

TIA

They are available on ebay, but if the seal is hardened as most of them are that are leaking, the threads of this tool wont cut into it. I put a lot of pressure on it and it would not grab, I tried it on two different seals. You would probably be better off trying to pry it out with a thin screw driver. A very poorly designed tool.

This here might work, looking at it the width of the piece that goes into the seal may be too wide, it may be able to be carefully ground down to make it narrow enough. 13 bucks.

Thanks for the quick reply and especially the links!

I'll be attempting this project in the near future. Doesn't seem too hard if I have the proper tool.
