To just change the oil seal, you remove the halfshaft with the hub still
installed on it (thereby avoiding the need for the special hub puller). Look
on the backside of the brake backing plate, you should see 6 bolt heads with
locktabs. Turn the tabs and remove the 6 bolts, then you should be able to
pull the hub and halfshaft free from the housing. Be careful and don't hit the
brake backing plate with the shaft, as at this point it will be supported only
by the brake line. Also be sure to collect the shims under the bearing
housing, as they are important.
