As long as your Chevy vehicle has a one piece rear main seal, you can replace it without having to tear the engine apart. Those with a two piece seal require you to remove the engine from your vehicle and remove the rearmost crankshaft bearing cap. This is a job best left to a professional mechanic. With a one piece seal, you must remove the transmission from your vehicle. Then remove the flexplate and pry out the old seal. Lubricate the lip of the new seal and carefully drive it into place. The rest of the job is simply to reinstall the flexplate and transmission.
