Guide: Renewing a gear shifter seal

My Grande Punto 2008 1,2 gear box looked like this:

I thought that drive shaft seal was leaking but I was advised it probably was a gear shift seal leak. It actually was the case and it looked like this:

I ordered a new seal from eBay (30 ). Replacing an old seal took about three hours work and it were pretty simple job. Only tools needed were 10 mm spanner, 13 mm socket, two flat screw drivers, a punch, a hammer and sealant glue.

Take battery terminals off (10 mm spanner).

Remove battery (13 mm socket),

Remove the battery tray (13 mm socket):

Remove clutch slave cylinder (13 mm socket):

Open ground gable nut (13 mm socket) and remove reverse light switch connector:

Gear cables can be removed with one or two screwdrivers:

Gear shifter is attached with five screws (13 mm socket):

Gear shifter removed:

Remove lock pin with a punch:

Remove a seeger ring with a screw driver:

Gear shifter disassembled:

Remove old seal carefully with a screw driver and tap a new seal in place:

Assembly in reverse order. Use sealant when attaching gear shifter to gear box:

Renew gear oil.

Hope somebody find this instruction useful.
