Was it possible the last time they did the rear crank seal? That's a real pain in the backside to get at typically.

Also called the crank seal, and that one does require at least a transmission pull, if not an engine pull.

You didnt say why you need this, but almost all seal leaks involve pressure in the crankcase or cheap seals put in for no real reason.
