Question about Suzuki XL7
Your friend can do the job of fixing the oil seal on the axle and changing the engine oil, the required check up for the enigne/car for 70K. But since the OE spares must be sourced from Suzuki, it would be best ideal to have the check up done at the authorised centre instead of doing a part and then going back again to them in case of a hitch.
But what you must be able to do is not to get all thework done accordingly to the 70K maintenance schedule but choose to get the immediate action done like the oil seal, the engine oils, filters for oil and fuel, water coolant. Checks for suspension, brakes, electrics need to be done only if there is a fault detected or else can be put aside with a check up than to replace. It will only be to your risk of a breakdown and should be decided on the information after inspection.
So the final word is for you to decide after an estimate.

I had a Suzuki Gypsy, a MUV. One day for some reason the rear axle cover broke and the oil leaked out and the axle pulled backwards a little resulting in the brake cable got pulled and the vehicle was running hard as the brakes were pulling. I took it to a workshop and he removed the axle covering and did a special welding. It needs a special one as normal one does not work on it as it has to be welded inside as well as outside. Then he assembled the whole thing and it worked for two years when I sold the vehicle off. It is still running. Why I told you my story is that it may not be a home repair job because of the special welding. But rest is easy. And you sure have a similar problem at your hands. Choice is yours. However, consulting a workshop before you actually tow the vehicle would be beneficial.
