Amazing. You didn't let the first mechanic fix his mistake? Why do we hold mechanics to higher standards than doctors? Which seal was supposedly put in backward? I can't think of any that can be installed wrong. Normally when a mechanic does make a mistake he has to correct it at no charge to you. A lot of frustration and confusion come into play when the new problem isn't directly related to the work that was just performed, but it's usually impossible to convince owners of that. More auto-educated people understand how these things happen and don't complain, ... And they don't blame the mechanic. You are also suffering from the "ever since" syndrome". For the rest of the life of the car, if anything goes wrong you're going to blame it on that one sad mechanic.
I know there's more to the story than what you listed. I wonder how that mechanic feels after doing all that work for free. Do you work for free when you make a mistake?
