    Mine are leaking too, if no-one comes up with a tool i'm going to take measurements and make myself one, i'll post the dimensions on here if I do. How much did you pay for the seals and where from?

    just brought the cap in to have a look and have got the cap apart! just wound the preload all the way in entill the adjuster cap came out. there is a nut inside looks about 30mm across the flats need to check 2mor tho an a socket will have to be turned down aswell as theres not alot of room! when that is removed preload adjuster and seal should come out! will post back tomorrow when iv done it!
