I don't believe it'll be that simple. The front seal is encased in a steel shell. You have to pry it out of the timing cover. I did mine when it was off the car and I was really a little worried that it would crack the cover when I was hitting it with a punch and hammer to remove it, and then the seal installer and a hammer to put the new one in. One tip: put a little sealer on the new one, around the outside of the housing where it slides into the cover. Mine is seeping from this area. Good luck!When you pull the balancer, you should be able to yank the front main seal like you would the rear, by threading a screw into it and pulling. Then it's just as simple as tapping the new one in place and popping the balancer back on.
