Question about 1996 Nissan Pickup
Remove the 4 nuts,through the axle flange hole,that retain the axle bearing and shaft into the housing.You need to use a socket and extension,for this. It may be stuck in the axle bore,but a chain may be used or a slide hammer to knock it loose.Just pull it out and the seal is in the axle housing bore.
Use a large bar to remove the seal it is a press fit so it wont come out with out destroying it! I have used the axle shaft to do this.Pack the new seal with grease, to keep the seals expansion spring within the seal lips. You will need a driver to install the seal,and a hammer ! Good luck! Check the gear lube level and replenish after the seal,and axle is installed.

SOURCE: rear wheel seal leaking
Remember SAFETY FIRST. Jack up the right rear wheel, support the axle with a jack stand, remove the wheel, the brake drum, the banjo cover or differential cover. Allow the gear oil to drain out into you drain pan, carefully and slowly spin the ring gear (watch out not to pinch your fingers) look for a small bolt that is restraining the king pin, remove the bolt and then carefully slide the pin out !(don't spin the axles or ring gear while the pin is out) if you do the bushings and spider gers will move out of their places. After the pin is out then go over to the exposed axle and push it in until it stops. Go back over to the pumpkin and look inside, for a "U" shaped washer it will be on the end of the axle. Remove it from the axle. Now you can remove the axle and replace the wheel seal. Either rent a seal installing tool or carefully use a block of wood and evenly install the seal. If you kink or damage the new seal remove it and try it again. When you put everything back together put a little thread lock on the bolt for the king pin. dont over tighten it, could snap it. Let me know if I can help any more.

You should buy a manual for 25.00$ but some librarys have manuals to look at in the reference sec. and some auto pasrts stores can print out the blowup, autozone.com has a good web site with pics and info for each vehicle and problem, good luck

yes theres a seal from the axle shaft, but theres a also your brake cylinders. to find that you need to remove the tire and check the brakes or check the brake fluid reservoir for low fluid. either way you need to remove the tire. if its your axle seal then the pin theres pins on the actual differential to remove the axle shaft. a little more complicated. check the axle shaft to wear from the seal and bearings. also check the diffrential for a good level or you will loose the diffrential if you keep on running it. the level check is on a plug like half way that ususally removed by hand or a ratchet then stick your finger and if you dont feel it put oil on,. the proper oil level is when you can feel the oil with out sticking in a rod or stick in there. hope this helps

SOURCE: I have to replace my
Hello Richard, the bearing and seal kit will run you about $75, i recommend using a Timken bearing over the AC Delco. Two hours labor to install is the norm for most shops @ $85- $95 per hour. Dealer rates will be higher. Estimated repair cost $265.00.
I hope this helps.
