Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

That's quite a bit of questions and A LOT of work in front of you so you better be prepared.

Do you know yet if you are able to remove the crankshaft sprocket bolt? That bolt is torqued to hell and back and without the counter holding bar bolted to sprocket I don't think you will get the bolt out.

The seal can be easily replaced using a proper fitting tube or deep socket that have the same size as the outer diameter.

The same goes for the camshaft sprockets, you need a counter holding tool that fit into the holes to hold the sprockets still when loosening and tighten. That tool is generic and you can find it at auto part stores.
Camshaft seals are easy using a proper sized socket to knock them in with.
Camshafts will move when you remove sprockets so it is just a matter of reading up and learning about how to use the different numbers on sprockets to clock them correctly.

Use and search the 9-5 board also for info about the V6 timing belt.

When belt and sprockets are removed, you remove the rear timing cover to reach the thermostat and use a Dremel to CAREFULLY split the thermostat housing around the tube and then break off a piece for easy removal. That way you don't have to extract that troublesome bypass tube fully.

It is lots of info here and on the 9-5 board so search using many different words.
And check the link here for some tips.
