    No. The shift rails will need to be removed. Sorry

    Shaft seals can be done without full disassemble but is a pain, but so isnt pulling the transfer and tearing it down because of that little leaky seal. Pull the bar from the rails and carefully dig them out without scaring anything up, I think I used one of those cheap bodyshop slide hammers before after drilling a small hole in the old seal. Slide the new one on with some grease on it and come up with a small pc. of pipe that will drive the new seal on but has ID bigger than the shift rail and tap it in.
