shows the parts and proceedure .

unless your replacing the bearing (which is usually the cause for a breached seal ) you wont replace the outer seal ..

I recommend replacing :

bearing retainer
inner & outer seal

also check the diff vent valve .. if it is plugged , diff has no place to vent the pressure .. this also could cause a leak . in that case just replace the inner seal .
