Default sl1 manual input shaft seal leak

I have a 1996 Saturn SL1 with a 5 speed manual transmission. I have taken the transmission out because the clutch was slipping. I bought all of the new clutch parts ready to replace the clutch plate, pressure plate and throw out bearing. My problem is that when I got the transmission out, I found that the only problem was the input shaft seal on the transmission is leaking which is dripping the atf fluid onto the clutch causing it to slip. My question is this: can I replace just the input shaft seal on the transmission without taking the tranmission apart? If not, is there an easy way to separate only part of the transmission to only allow access to this seal? Is it a major job? I am quite mechanical, but have no experience with the internals of transmissions, is there anything I need to worry about, or is this a job best left to a transmission shop. Any advise would be appriciated. Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I'm going to tell you straight up front, I've never done this, but I believe you are talking about the quill bearing seal. If so, you have to pretty much pull the tranny apart to get to it. Different Racing has the best guide to doing this that I've seen. Here's a link to that. While you're at it, you should probably get the diff pin welded.

If it is like my dodge tranny, all you do is remove that throw-out bearing, then unbolt three bolt to get the seal housing out, replace the seal and the install is the reverse.

Try to e-mail the http://www.differentracing.com/ guys, they should be able to help you rather quickly.
