hi iv reconditioned my own and its a very good job if u take ur time and be very carefull and patient wit the seals, use 2000 grit sandpaper only!!!!!! no less and any more wont really do much, use oil spray and like a metal pick to clean all grooves if i had pics id send u how i done mine, but that was last year.
if u have any questions i can help with let me know.

I did it before, there's a link to a rebuild guide in my old thread here.

U can take it out ad put it in easy when its not on the car. Needlenose pliers should work OK.
