    Default Right rear wheel oil seal.

    I have noticed a possible leak on the oil seal on the right rear wheel. Can i just replace the seal itself, or do i need to replace the bearing and seal as a kit? Not too much leaking, just a bit sweating for now. The left side is not a problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to remove the bearing to change the seal. So yes, you have to do the seal and bearing.

    I assume this is not a diy job?

    Its can be. If you have a new set of everything, a 4 pound hammer or angle grinder to remove the old bearing retainer ring. And to re-install preferably a hydraulic press or a gas flame to heat the ring up good.

    Yes, it is a diy job. Did a couple of them in the past.
