Broken down in Houston

The left front seal went out on my '11 Wee 400 miles into my trip to Colorado. I limped back to Houston and need a recommendation for a good mechanic that can help. I don't have the tools nor have I ever done a seal replacement and think someone who's done them before is the best way to go. Thanks in advance for any advice or help.

The how is here but with no tools, that may be a bit of a bother.
I had a seal going out in St Paul Mn and rode the bike back to Calif by way of Jelleystone NP.
You could try pulling the cap and refilling, try using a flexible bit of plastic to swipe the seal area to clear a bit of offending dirt that may be causing the leak.
Your ride is degraded but not impossible.
