Assuming you have to move the crank to get it out, (and if the design is anything like the clamshell you will) I would change the lot - you'll never get the rest to re - seal properly once they have been moved.

Short term pain for long term gain

V6 Crank sealing rings can be reused. You only need to change the broken one. But fit new crank oil seals obviously.
