Good morning and thanks for the speedy reply. You mean that if place a suitable screwdriver or a lever between the inner end of drive shaft and gear box and I have a little luck with me it comes out? :)

A wide blade screwdriver or a small pry bar will ease them out

you might want to consider replacing the seal while the driveshaft is out (if it still is) you should be able to get a genuine one for a couple of quid.

once disturbed they can leak

Thanks for the note, I already put the shaft to its place. The oil seal was pretty good and priot to refit I put some oil around for better fitment but I took it up to my mind to see if I have some leak. Many thanks again!!!!!
