Yikes, still leaking, shift selector seal

Ok: still working on the TJ w my son, of course. 1999 4L, 3 speed auto, 116K

So far new drag link, track bar, sway bar links ,ujoints, 2" lift and shocks, steering box and 1/8" alignement and OE transmission gasket, new wires, plugs, dist, etc..

Need help, still leaking trany fluid from the top, the shift selector seal.

Does anyone know where to get the seal tool to pull w/o dropping the pan? I've already dropped the pan a few times.... :

Thank you, stephen

If you can, just drill a small hole in the metal of the seal, crank a screw into it, grab the screw with a pair of pliers and give it a yank. Should pop right out.

I removed the shifter and center console then used a small hook tool to remove the old seal.

Cool, if I remove the console, the access is through the small 4x6" opening? Is that the right spot?

I'm good with the drill screw nd hook plan.

I'm picking the seal up at NAPA today.

Sorry I took so long to reply. There is a access plate that needs top be removed. Its what the shifter assembly is attached to. Once you take that off you just need to remove the shift linkage then its pretty easy to reach the seal.
