Can the left hand crank seal be changed from the outside, or do the casings need to be split?

Oil leak from right hand side, recovery guy said he thought it was the seal. If not possible to do without splitting engine will have to scrap car, hence asking.

Do you
have the same problem?

It needs taken apart. However, if you are tight for money, check out the local parts store. They have products that may help slow or eliminate the oil leak. They make things that you just add to the oil and it causes seals to swell. This isn't the way I would recommend to fix it, but it may get you by until you have the money to fix it right. I know what it means to be tight on money. I hope it helps. Make sure they sell you something that is worth purchasing and not a cheap usless product. I'm not allowed to recommend brands.
