When they are replacing the seal, how much effort is involved in checking the clutches?

What would they be looking for to tell if they have been compromised?

Seems like they would just replace them since they are already right there? How much are they?

Thanks for all of your responses! I want to have as much information as possible so that this is done right the first time.

The TSB requires that the clutch pack be replaced as if there is an oil seal leak onto the clutch material it can cause it to slip and get destroyed so if they are stupid and don't order the clutch pack at the same time then you're not going to get the car back and working properly any time soon.
