I think @ucsbwsr drilled a tiny hole in the edge of his old one, screwed in a small screw part way, then pryed it out by the screw. Not sure how he put the new one in, but he has definitely done it without the tool.

Very short tap screw. Screw into old seal then use pliers to pull. Lube new seal and use a big enough socket or cylinder to hammer in at once to go in evenly.

Are you talking about the front seal around the crank hub or the rear main seal?

For the rear main seal I drilled a small hole, inserted a screw, and pulled it out with a hammer. I used a similarly destructive method to remove the large sealing cap on the front side of the engine. Never removed the front crank hub seal.

I recently installed a new rear main seal. Went in dry, per instructions. The primer is no longer used on the new seals. You can get a seal puller from your local auto parts store and remove it. I also sealed it with grey rtv sealant. I have not had any issues and it is still dry as a bone.

Honestly as important of a job as this is I would just buy the tool if you can't rent it from someone.
This is the best deal I could find

I guess that's what I'll end up doing and then rent it out to people myself.
Thanks!

Default BMW front crank seal tool - 09-25-2018, 04:58 PM

Attempting to remove / install crank seal now. Leaking oil filter housing causes drive belt to get destroyed. Pieces of drive belt were lodged behind the harmonic balancer which ate up the seal. Awaiting new parts and installation tool now. If anyone has questions on how this procedure is done id be happy to try and help.
