I have the tank and plastic tub out. How do I remove rubber tank seal?
Answer Hello Danny,
You would need a seal removal tool 12002012. The part is showing not available. You could try to remove by pushing out and new one in, but doing it this way you take a greater risk of damaging the outer tub.
I was wondering if you could give me a list or a tool kit of what tools are required to replace the Triple Lip Seal/hub kit.
Answer Hello Edward,
In addition to a 3/8 drive ratchet set, you will need a Phillips head screwdriver, a pair of needle nosed pliers, adjustable wrench (Crescent style), a brake and bearing removal and reinstallation tool 12002012, spring removal tool TJ22002922, a rubber mallet and a good pair of mechanics gloves. There is also a spanner nut in there under the inner tub that the spanner wrench 35-2968 is no longer available but it uses an adaptor TJ22002898. I found that you can use the adaptor, a couple of Phillips head screwdrivers and a wrench to get the seal nut off. This eliminates the need for the discontinued spanner wrench. You have to put one screwdriver through the hole in the end of the wrench and the end of both screwdrivers in holes in the adaptor on opposite sides, and use the wrench to turn the seal nut. This isn't the easiest thing in the world, but it will do the job. You will also need a large shipping blanket or equivalent to protect the floor.
