Do you mean the bolt is turning at the top? Are you able to get anything in there to stop it?

If the rear main oil seal is damaged, you have to separate the engine and transmission. It has a 1 piece seal and can't be installed while the two components are together. I would think removing the transmission would be quicker and easier than the engine.

After thought. When you reinstall the trans, check, check, and then recheck to make sure ALL WIRING it properly routed and not going to get pinched together between the engine and trans, or anything else. Shorting the PCM or TCM can be an expensive and frustrating mistake.

I just checked my online manual. They provide pics for transmission components, but not removal. You may want to get a good service manual at a local parts store that has pics and steps to remove it.
