I have the tool for that, I just can't get the interior mechanism out to remove the rear seal.

It's alright though, I dropped if off at quick lane and they said not to worry they'd take care of it and have it done early in the morning!

I have some issues to report, not with this, but my daily driver:

My clutch is shattered into pieces on the mazda3.

The differential locked up, literally exploded, destroying the shift forks and the gearing inside the tranny.

Mazda quoted me $4,200+tax to install a new tranny and a clutch. FML

I got some good things going, though, thanks to some friends and Elliot on here for helping me out.

Looking to get a 2009 2.3L manual tranny with 11k on the clock for $300 from the dealer/shop we got my moms car from last year.

OEM or replacement clutch for $200-300

Installation for $300.

If this all works out I will be ecstatic. If not, FML again lol.

Looking good so far!

I had the same coilpack and went back to stocks during one of my tunes because it was so irregular, stocks good for 700hp anyways.
