Default Timing Chain Cover Seal Replacement

I've got the cover off for a separate project and wanted to replace the seals while i'm at it. It seems the like the seal (91212-PCX-003) is press fit in but i don't want to damage the case trying to force it out. Can anyone confirm the correct way to remove and replace it? Thanks!

Thanks for the quick response. I've got the cover off the block so space isn't an issue. Seems it is press-fit in, then? What type/size of tool do you use to install the new seal?

Typically these kinds of 'special tools' are either extremely expensive or simply unavailable. I was hoping there would be a recommendation for a quick fix like a socket, but i'll try to find a 55mm fitting.

Not sure how many of these seals/bearings you'll be doing... but, here is a moderately priced driver set:

I had looked at those but the 55mm in the diagram that @flanders provided would be 2.165in, which wasn't in the cheaper kits i've found. I'm digging around looking for the 2.165/55mm that would fit a set like the one you linked.

I bet if you reverse the 2.325" disc, it'll be close to 2.165". As long as you are driving a seal into the engine, this should be fine. Now, if it were a bearing, there maybe an issue with not-the-correct sized collar.

What I've done before, if the old seal cleanly comes out, is use the old seal to tap in the new one. Line-up the old seal on top of the new one. Just lightly tap around the edges of the old seal to seat the new one.

Lube the seal and clean the engine casting, before replacing the seal. Tap until you feel the seal hit the casting stop point.

You can get the tool for $24 from Honda but you should probably be able to borrow or get something cheaper than that from a local machine shop or similar.
The manual thing was more to point out there are other things you might want to pay attention too as well.

If the seal is not damaged, leave it alone. You could do more harm than good.
