Re: need to remove front right axel,
It will take some time, but you will have to unbolt the wheel, then find your sway bar, it should be a small bar/rod that comes up and connects to a larger one, then you will take the bolts out from the bottom of the strut. Make sure you have the car on a jack stand in the front unless you have two jacks, b/c you may need a jack to lift the hub assembly back up to mount the strut.......Once you have basically disconnected everything from your hub assembly and it is hanging/moving up and down freely, (make sure you don't damage the brake lines in the process, move them safely) you will grab the top of the rotor, and pull toward you and down, then basically it is just some pulling, and pushing before you get the shaft out.

I would check the hubs and make sure nothing is broken internally. Otherwise, you'll have to look at that front diff. If the oil leak is something new, you may have broken a ring or pinion gear in the differential. The pieces would be binding inside the housing, causing more damage. I would not drive it until it can be looked at, to limit any further damage.
There is far too much info needed to tell you how to remove a front axle of any vehicle. Either you know how, or you don't. If you don't, you will need some help that only a manual can give, or a person with mechanical abilities or previous experience.
basically, if you don't know, don't try it...a vehicle that falls on you will kill you....
Jack the vehicle up at proper jack points and lower onto jack stand or stands.remove drivers side wheel. Use needle node pliers and a screwdriver to remove the cotter pin in the axel nut and determine the size of the axel nut. It will most likely be metric 28mm to 36mm. Use an impact to remove the axel nut. Now you will need to remove one or both of the ball joints. Start with the bottom one first and hold the axel in place and pull out on the hub. After you have the hub off of the axel note the splines and how the line up. Now turn the hub so that it is out of the way. You may be able to just yank the axel out of the transmission. If it didn't come out easily you will need a crow bar to gently pry the axel out of the case. Be careful not to put too much pressure on the transmission case. It's aluminum and it will crack and break if you beat on it. Just pry gently and with the transmission in neutral ( be sure to chalk the rear wheels so the car won't run you over) slowly rotate the axel and pry until it comes out. If that doesn't work you will need to rent a slide hammer. Thread it to the free end of the axel and forcefully slide the weight out to knock the axel about of the trans. Installation is reverse. DO NOT USE A HAMMER to force the axel back in you will mushroom the threads and never get the nut on.
Jack up one side at a time and get a big bar or a strong 2x4, lift the wheel, have somebody lift while you peek at the inside and see if you can see something loose, grab the wheel and shake it left and right, It should tell you something, If, not, try the other side, Something gotta be clinking in there somewhere. You don't need a socket to get the bearing nut off, it is not tight, it is snugged up and then backed off, If it were put on tight, It would overheat in a few miles and smoke you out of the car and weld itself to the spindle/ axle, which ever you have there, most front drive cars don't have front end problems like 2 wheel drive cars, but they do have bearing problems. Hope this helps.
fror fixing the brakesw take the other rear wheel off and duplicate what u see. to get the axel out u must first remove diff cover in center of rearend then u will see a clip for each side axel remove clip and axel will slide out. good luck fron 1 to 5 being difficult its a 3
The axle requires a slide-hammer to remove. And usually the axle bearing is destroyed in the process. A new axle bearing needs to be pressed on by a machine shop, and then the reinstall of the axle requires the correct application of concussive force. This is NOT for the faint of heart, or the ill-equipped!
Are you sure the brake cylinder on the affected side isn't leaking? It would spray oil everywhere, and is MUCH easier to fix. You would tell this as the brake pedal would move easier than it should.
usually just pry between tranny and axel and pops off. see this has a c clip on the end off the axel so it has some pressure.just pry and it should pop right off. ps make sure theres no pin on the axel if there is just use a center punch and push it out you might need a hammer.
you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete
