Sounds to me like it's leaking around the oilseal that is on the inside 
of the hub. You will need to remove the hub to replace it, just remember 
that one side is RH thread and the other LH, I can never remember which 
is which. Might just want to go ahead and replace the bearing while you 
got it all apart. I suggest you go ahead and do both sides while you got 
the tools out. The nuts are a really odd size I think I used a 47mm 
socket to get them off but I am not sure.
