if you are talking about the axle seals, 1.REMOVE THE WHEELS.2. REMOVE THE DIFF COVER(slowly)3.REMOVE THE BRAKE CALIPER ASSEMBLY.4.REMOVE THE 8MM PIN IN THE DIFF CARRIER. 5.TURN CARRIER AND REMOVE THE LARGE PIN.6. FIRMLY HIT IN THE AXLE, A SMALL RETAINING C CLIP WILL FALL INTO THE DIFF HOUSING. DO THE SAME WITH THE OTHER SIDE. ( be careful if you have rear speed sensors remove it when you remove the brake calipers . you will break it when you are pushing in the axles.)7.pull axles and replace seals

SOURCE: Rear axle removal
Remove wheel, remove rear diff cover, remove small bolt that retains spider gear cross shaft in the carrier. Push axle in, remove "c" clip on end of axle and remove axle from housing. Reverse to replace. Only problem you may have is that sometimes small bolt is broken inside carrier. if broken you will need to drill a tiny hole into it and remove with tiny "easy out" or other similar device.
Do not turn carrier when shaft has been removed or spider gears will rotate and fall out!

some older cars do not have c lips. you need to jack up car and place on jack stands withe the whelles off the ground. remove rims/tires. remove drum brakes. remove rear end cover. you need a drain pan under it. you need the car in neutral. spin axle. look in rear end. posi or not you will see the large pin that goes through the middle of the diff. one end of the pin is held in by a bolt. reomve the bolt. spin the diff down. slide the pin out. in side the diff on each side are spider gears. with the pin out push the axle in. this will push the clip so you can pull it off of tha axle and spider gera. then pull axle out. noe an easy or claen job but very doable.
