Re: front differential seal replacement
Go to Auto Zone or some other retail auto parts store and buy a Haynes Repair Manual [about $20] for your make and model. It will show you step by step instructions with pictures on how to repair just about anything on it. Best investment when you are repairing it yourself.

Do you mean the seals at the hogs head? If so you purchase them drain the fuid by removing some bolts and loosing all then pry at bottom to drain. Remove old seal clean check for wear on internal parts in the differential clean off magnet if you have one. Add new seal tighten bolts replace with dealer recommend fluids and capacities
yes it is leaking differential oil and means that your differential gears are dry and winding becuase rubbing against each other you need buy a differential seal kit and clean off old seal taking apart differential and then put neew on then fill with differential fluid you can use the gasket maker if cant buy a gasket but should be done asap or you will burn up the gears and be left without a vehicle
Hello, not hard to do. You need to remove the drive shaft, to get to the nut that holds the rear yoke from the differential. Once the rear yoke has been removed, you can replace the O ring seal from the differential by using a screw driver to pry out
the old seal. Try not to damage it to much so you can use it to help
tap in the new seal. Once the seal is out place the new seal in place
by hand and then place the old old seal on it and tap in the new seal
with a small hammer. Take care to ensure that the new seal goes in
straight and place some grease on the seal before you place the yoke
back in to place. Tighten up the yoke nut and you may want to replace
the U joint at this time too since it's off the truck. Once everything
it back together, check the differential oil level and top off. Good
luck and hope this helps, you can get the parts at Auto Zone and they
can also give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. The hardest part that i can see you having
is the removal of the yoke nut, the job takes about an hour to do so if
your going to have a garage to the job the most would be 1.5 hours but
should take them about 30 min to do.
if you have the hubs of than you dont have much futher to go to replace the axl seals. just slide out the axls the passenger side is two pice then take out the four bolts that hold in the carrier gear then pull out the hole gear asemblie the driver side seal is in the differential housing the passenger seal you have to take of the cad unit in the middle of passenger side axle case.tech article with pictures at pavement sucks.com
