Just incase you didnt see it ill post it again. Theres no easier way to do it. Theres ridges on the seal that keep it in place, you will ruin the seal if you try to install it without splitting the case
Ive done it by flipping the motor upside down and just removing the bottom half of the case. You still need to remove the mag and stator and while its apart change both seals.
