VW beetle gearbox mainshaft / input shaft seal removal
This is how I removed the gearbox input shaft seal. It was leaking so it
had to be replaced. At first I tried it with a couple of screws screwed
into it, and then pulling it. But the screws just came out.
Then I found this video: http://youtu.be/SkyOxYGmiLk (play at 240p).
I bought a seal puller online, via a Dutch (I'm from the Netherlands)
online shop, this one:
And with this tool, it's done in 5 minutes!
When installing a new seal, don't forget to put some gearbox oil on the
inside! And when putting the throwout bearing sleeve back on, mind the

Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator,
impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and
practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only
transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives
the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you
take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time.
In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a
year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my
belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I
hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of
torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor
cutting this one in half.
