Here are the videos according to the sequence below to show you how the task is done.
1.  Removing the crankshaft sprocket using the first puller
 then the second puller

2. The crankshaft sprocket has been removed so the oil seal has to be replaced
3. Assembling the parts

Now when you assemble it, remember to be sure the timing is of utmost consideration.  If you forget it you will have your work repeated and it’s a waste of time.  So here is how you will set the timing marks together with the timing belt shown in a video.
