HOW DO I REPLACE THE RIGHT REAR OUTER WHEEL/AXLE SEAL ON MY XL-7AND IS IT 80W90 REAR DIFF OIL?

2005 Suzuki XL7 • 100,000 miles

My right rear wheel plate and shoes are soaked in gear oil. I think it is the bearing seal I just don't know how to get the axle out so I can replace the seal. I do not have a repair or operators manual for the XL-7. Thanks

You need to remove the axle assembly either by un bolting the axle by the 4 bolts or releasing the c clips inside the differential.

The seal is part of the bearing and may need to be pressed off and on.
Make sure you change the shoes and clean the drum.
