DIY Video (partial): 1994 Toyota 4runner v6 4WD Companion Flange Seal Replacement

The underbelly of my 4runner was starting to get coated with gear oil around where the rear companion flange hooked up to the rear propeller shaft. I decided to go ahead and replace the seal in there. This was my first time replacing the seal and I actually ripped the first one I bought from Toyota of Palo Alto. I ended up having to drive the G35 over to Piercy Toyota in Milpitas to pick up another seal ($5). I didn't have anyone around to help me film, so the video footage is partial, but it's better than nothing and gives a general idea of what's required to get to the companion flange to replace the seal.
