Usually you pull the trans for this job, but BE SURE that the rear main seal is the issue. Everything that leaks shows up in that area.

How to replace u joints on 97 gmc sanoma truck

Chock the wheels. Undo the bolts near the rear axle housing. You may have to pry the driveshaft back towards the transmission, Pull the drive shaft. Use a large C-clamp and one oversize socket and one undersize socket to press the bearing caps out on the yokes of the driveshaft. The undersize socket needs to be slightly smaller than the bearing cap. The oversize socket needs to be larger than the bearing cap. Install is the reverse of. Be sure to install a new rear transmission seal (about $2.50)for the driveshaft before installing the drive shaft

Rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??

A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.
