You are aware that there is more than one tool, and they differ considerably, depending upon which type of seal you are installing?

And that tool (9609) will not work with the latest design RMS, which is made from PTFE and requires special tools 9699 and 9699/2 insert guide to install and set it to the correct depth. The new design RMS comes with a plastic sleeve attached that mounts onto the new insert guide, which the old tool cannot do...................

Fair enough..........Go to Pelican Parts and find the correct RMS, then go to their tool section and find the appropriate install tool. The part I linked is described as "Oil Seal Installation Tool (for original-style seal) - Flywheel Side, Boxster/Boxster S (1997-04)", seeing as this is the 986 forum I was trying to give the man direction. BTW...I installed the new style RMS with the plastic sleeve and made my own install tool with storebought items, when it was all said and done I would of purchased / rented the install tool given the time it took me to make it. On the other hand, thousands of miles and no leaks. My RMS, IMS, Tranny removal write up.........

I read your write up earlier. While we sometimes fabricate our own tools, what we make needs to be durable enough to survive in a shop environment; and sometimes factoring in the time costs, buying what already exists commercially can be both expedient and economical over the longer term. In any case, I was trying to alert the original poster to the fact that there are more than one style tool, and they need to be aware of what they are renting/borrowing top be sure it was appropriate for the job…………….

Then you need special tools 9699 and 9699/2 insert guide to install it, or you can fabricate what you need using Coreseller's thread..............

You're probably be better off; one of my tech's "borrowed" my 9699 and 9699/2 tools (required to do a new style PTFE seal) to do an RMS at his home shop. And someone promptly stole them. I just placed an order for replacements: $464.07, plus freight.......... And people get pissed when I refuse to lend or rent tooling................jeez.
