If the seal is leaking, you will need to drain the oil, and pull both covers. The gaskets can be reused on the covers, so be careful taking them off. Keep the outer bolts separate from the inners as they are different in length. You will have to remove both the primary, and secondary clutches. I think on the HDX that the gas tank also has to be removed. I use a impact to remove mine. Be careful on the primary nut, I've found that they lose their grip after several uses even with lock-tite. New nuts are 4.00 dollars. Once you have the inner cover off, you will have to have the clutch housing pressed out, and same with the seal. There is also a O-ring that should be replaced. Check the spacer for wear, and replace if needed. Now you can make a decision on the one way bearing, you can remove it and reduce some driveline noise, or leave it in (I took mine out, and like it better!). I usually recommend taking the cover to a qualified dealer to have them replace the seal. I have a press in my shop so I'm able to do my own, but I'm lucky!
