D110 question

Hey guys, I could use some help. My D110 (2002 TD5) appears that the right rear wheel has gear oil on it from my last drive, last week. I would assume that the axle seal has gone bad and needs to be replaced. This truck is at my home in Cost Rica, and I don't really want my local shop touching this truck if I can help it, so my question is this, is this something that I can fix myself with normal tools, or will it require something special, or is it worst than I think? I live 8hrs away from a real LandRover shop, and would not drive it that far if I can help it. Back in the states for now ( and for the MAR), but need to fix . Any help would be appreciated.

You should be able to take care of this yourself. The only tool you may need is a Hub Nut socket. I think it is 2 1/16. Some say you could use a large socket, but I have not tried it yet. I think they are $15-$20 from AB or RN.

you can fix that yourself. seems to be the inner axle oil seal. jack the truck up, remove the tire, and take the caliper off with a 12point 13mm socket (I think it is 13mm but i might be wrong). Unbolt the axle and slide it out. then get a 52mm socket or 2 1/16" socket or hub nut removal tool and take hub off. then you can access the inner oil seal.

put it all back together and you should be fine. remember to tighten the hub down nice but not too tight.

only special tools you need is a 12point 13mm and a hub nut socket tool
