I am in the process of doing that in a 2002 x star but I will warn you that my list of stuff to fix when I did it has multiplied by about a 1000! May want to see if the leak slows or stops after the seal has been used a little. I say this because we are fast approaching the time to be using the boat not necessarily working on it and this can be a HECK of a project. Just make sure you have fluid in the tranny at all times.

While I can't help ya with instal or anything, IF you get the trans part I would suggest replacing the damper plate if it shows any kind of wear just as a precaution. On the trans of those years they tend to be a bit weak and who signs of wear. Mine as well do it while its apart as the part is cheap
