This oil leak started to sweat years ago and went terminal recently during a long trip to Nordland. A few points - after doing some research, we only removed the hub nut and released the lower ball joint from it's four bolts and removed the ABS sensor from its retention clip only. We were then able to pull the lower control arm down and hold it in place with a strap connected to the lower control arm on the other side. The axle assembly rather easily came out of the transmission but the oil seal was extremely stubborn, seems to have been glued in place with a red sealer. Neither the plastic seal puller we 3D printed nor the metal seal puller we had worked. Add a claw hammer, wrecking bar and screw driver to the list. Seems like the only way to remove it was through brute force and a lot of time to systematically destroy it. Used some oil resistant black gasket maker to help seal the new one in place. We used SKF part 13750 which appears identical to OE which i believe is no longer available. Got it thru the local NAPA dealer. Garage quote was 2-3 hours. Shade tree time was about six hrs. A 32mm socket was needed for the hub nut which appeared lock-tited on. IT was easy to get off with an extension bar but it was soaked with PB Blaster for several days beforehand (blue loctite upon reassy and proper torquing. There is an older Youtube video from E-Euro which we mostly followed but they were replacing the shaft only, not a stubborn oil seal. The passenger side is apparently more difficult so I will bring it into a shop if that seal goes anytime soon.
