SOURCE: Rear Axle Seal Replacement
remove rear tires, then remove brake calipers and rotors, then remove the 4 nuts (each side) that hold the axle shafts to the axle tube (located around the axle tube behind the backing plate) then using a slide hammer pull the axle shafts out, next using a die grinder and an air hammer get he retainer collar and the bearing off (without damaging the axle shaft) then remove the seal and the outer race which will still be in the housing. next put it all back together, make sure the plate with the studs is still on then slide the seal, bearing, then retainer on (all new parts) and using a press push them all the way back on. then is simple reassembly.

SOURCE: Water pump
Hello nedy...if you have the V6 engine, it will require the removal of the timing chain cover to access the water pump. The water pump is mounted to the engine block with 4 bolts. It is recommended that the bolts be replaced due to electrolysis (steel bolt in aluminum block) Replace all gaskets and o-ring seals as well.
While you are in there, you can inspect the timing chains, it has 3..and the chain tensioners. A Haynes repair manual would be helpful on this project and will have the correct torque specs.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate mr a fixya.

Do it again and be really careful to get the seal in dead square. Put a thin layer of silicone glue around the outside of the seal housing, on some difficult ones that leak, you can put silicone inside the cavity where the tension spring is to give a bit more pressure on the axle (let that dry before using) and, make sure you wipe a bit of grease on the axle where the seal rides so it cant run dry before lube reaches it. One or more of these items have got to work...I've used them all and they all have worked.

SOURCE: right rear axle seal leaks
If only your axle seals are leaking then just remove one axel at a time. Take it to an automotive machine shop where they will press of the old seals bearings and reatainer and press on a new seal barring and reatainer all greased up and ready to slide back into place. No need to replace the whole axle for a leaky seal. Once this is done with both sides ( assuming both sides are leaking) refil the differential so the oil just starts to ooze out of the fill hole and replace the cap. Presto you are good to go. Also an important note. Make sure sure rear breaks are not soaked in 90W oil. This will impede your breaking ability and cause a dangerous situation. If the break pads are soaked they will most likely need to be replaced.
