front crank oil seal please help!!!!

hi im interested in buying a 2002 156 2.0 JTS but the front crankshaft oil seal is leaking and i dont know if i should give it a go and buy it and repair it or stay away from it, the exterior and interior is sweet and the price is tempting as well. so i will really appreciate your help here guys

It's a reasonably big job. To get at it, you'll need to remove the timing belt (and everything to get to that stage), the crank cambelt pulley (which is VFT and a left-hand thread), and the oil pump (which means removing the o/s engine mount temporarily).

I'd check that it was really leaking from there first to be honest. It might be something else...
