Remove the 5/16 th bolt from the pinion pin, slide pin out, DO NOT rotate axles at this point. Push the axle in from the tire mounting flange, the locking "C" clip will fall out, pull shaft out, use a slide hammer with bearing puller attached, pull bearing and seal, If the bearing surface on the axle shaft shows any signs of roughness or pitting, use a repair bearing, if it's ok, use standard bearing and seal. Use a bearing intaller to install, reassemble in reverse order...install lock "C" clip as shown,
