You do not have to open the case. I inserted 2 self drilling screws partially into the seal and used them to pull it out, worked great.

Re:Sudden trans fluid leak. 5 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Pretty easy fix. I did mine. I put a drywall screw in the seal on either side of the shaft. A vice grip on each screw and work it out. Get a piece of pvc pipe with a cap on one end the size of the seal. A little fluid around the seal, push it in to secure it then tap it in with the pvc and a rubber hammer. Worked for me.

Thanks for your help. I've ordered the o-ring and seal--will give it a go when they arrive.

Parts not here yet, but I did take the nut off. Boy, I don't know if it was just factory tight (unless they do something there when doing the transmission recall), but that nut was stripping out my 36mm socket while trying to remove it. I had to chisel it off. Being loose was not a problem!

Gear oil has a very peculiar nasty smell, unlike oil. probably tastes a lot different too but I wouldn't try it.
