Hello,

Can I change the oil pump seal by prying the old one out and tap in the new one WITHOUT removing the pump from the 4AGE engine? Would this damaging the seal, or cause oil leak afterward? Thanks!

I just replaced the front seal on my car. You are going to have to take off most everything in front of the seal anyway (crank pulley, timing pulley, etc.) so I would go ahead and remove the pump as well. It's a lot easier to remove the seal and replace it out of the car and it's not that much more work to remove the oil pump. Just make sure you get a new gasket for it as well. Good luck.
