Front Drive Shaft oil weep

Post by maxaret » Sat Jul 11, 2020 11:20 am

Just having a periodic check under the suzi today I noticed that the O/Side drive shaft has an oil weep just inboard of the gaiter,I am assuming there is an oil seal in there.
The area just looks a bit 'wet' and no signs of a 'drip' so far.
I am assuming it is front diff oil weeping out so I will probably do a diff oil change/level check sometime soon.
Assuming it is an oil seal problem - what sort of job is it to replace please ?
