VW Polo drive shaft oil seal leak - bertj
The oil seal at the nearside drive shaft inboard end (where the drive shaft comes out of the transmission case) seems to be leaking on my 2000 VW Polo. Has anyone replaced such an oil seal - is it a reasonably competent DIY job? Or is it a trip to our local friendly VW rip-off shop?
Any comments would be appreciated.

I've done the job on a Pug 205. The old seal easily pulls out with a screwdriver and the new one taps in squarely. However, the box need draining of oil and the suspension requires dismantling to enable the driveshaft to be pulled out. Two or three hours!
