well, the diff cover has to be removed, the center shaft removed so the axle can be removed. once removed, the seal is exposed and the bearing shold be replaced also as it is more than likely the reason the seal failed. then you need to look at the axle to see if the bearing landing is worn or scored. it may have to be replaced as well. check the brake shoes for contamination as well. roy
