The shifter rod, and the wire rings looks impossible to remove with the transmission in the car. And the seal itself, is a lot smaller than I thought

I'm not gonna just change out the fluid, to have it leak right back out of a leaky old seal.
The shift shaft seal and the rear output shaft shaft seal are 100% serviceable with the transmission in the car.

The seal is serviceable with the trans in the car. But it is definitely not fun and is infinitely easier with the trans out of the car. If you have any reason to have the trans out in the near future just wait, but if not, I'd suggest just doing the seal.

That stupid little seal is horrible.

I think that is much worse than the ***** clip... by far.
