/5 4 speed trans output shaft seal

I'm trying to build steam on getting my R75/5 back together. The trans output seal was visibly damaged, the spring around the seal lip broken, and i removed the drive flange about a year ago. When I did this, it looked to me like the seal comes out from the outside, and I wouldn't have to pull the back cover to replace it. I was just looking at MAX BMWs fische, and it shows that the seal goes in from the inside of the cover. Which way does it go? Please tell me I don't have to open up the trans.

The output seal goes in from the outside. Pull the flange, pop out the seal and fit the new one, refit the flange, torque and your done. The seal goes in with the spring and lip towards the shaft or towards the rear.

Good luck!

Thanks Pokie, that's what it looked like to me, but the parts diagram led me astray.

Microfiche parts diagrams are never to be used as directions. Sometimes they may work but then there will be a "Gotcha" so best to know this up front. Great example of an oft repeated piece of advice.
