You should be able to change this seal after removing the timing cover from the engine. Check your shop manual.

Method 1: Impact wrench

Method 2: Breaker bar and socket on balancer bolt. Rest breaker bar on something solid (subframe, etc) toward front of car. Disable ignition (pull coil wire). Crank engine. Bolt will come loose. Done this many times with great success.

Even with plugs in, a wrench on the bolt will turn the engine over before the bolt breaks free.

Wear, dirty oil or plugged PCV system will make them leak.

To pull the pulley off get a steering wheel puller you can rent from the auto parts store.

Make sure you have something the right size to press the new seal in with. PCV pipe or fittings can usually be used to find the correct size.
