The axle assembly is connected to the engine and the differential. If you need to remove the front axles from your Dakota, you will need plenty of garage or workshop space.
The procedure is as follows:--
1) Raise the truck's front end and support it on jack stands. Remove both front wheels.2) Then disconnect the brake calipers and mounting brackets from the discs by removing their bolts with a wrench, then slip the brake discs off.3) Disconnect the nut connecting the drive axle to the hub, placing a pry bar between two of the wheel studs to keep the hub from turning.4) You can remove the hub bearing and the brake disc shield by removing the hub's retaining nuts from the back side of the steering knuckle.5) Carefully pry the inner CV joint assembly from the front differential using the pry bar.
Note: -- Make sure you don't damage the differential while prying it out.Then guide the drive axle out from underneath the truck.
6)  Detach the cross member by removing its mounting bolts, disconnect the drive-shaft from the differential pinion flange and support it with a rope or wire, then disconnect the vent tube from the differential cover. Raise a floor jack under the differential to support the axle assembly. Remove the assembly's bolts and fasteners at the left engine mount, pinion nose bracket and right engine mount.

Held on by a bolt and two clips. Bend the clips and remove the bolt. Just be prepared to replace them if they are really rusty.

Replace rear wheel seal


remove the rear axle and the seal will be in the end of the axle housing. Pull it out -fit the new seal in the same way and refit the axle. For seals to leak it is an indication that the bearing is either shot or needs adjustment so check that out as well. Check that the diff bleeder at the top of the diff is clear and that the diff is not over full

Rear diff leak on yoke of 2000 explorer


To replace the seal you must pull out the carrier assembly and the pinion gear and install a new crush sleeve if you do it by the book, I have found that if the yoke is removed a new seal installed and the yoke tightened to about 50 foot lbs of torque it is ok, as far as the lube goes there is a plug on the cast case of the diff, it will either be a square drive plug or a large allen plug, fill the diff so you can just touch the fluid with your little finger, don't overfill or the axle seals will start leaking.

2005 Yukon Front Diff Axle seals


You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.
