Looks like a spindle seal.Ive never had to do one.I would think its a pain in ass
getting seal pressing in? Especially if your not Familiar.Axle should pull strait out though.

Hopefully the Excellent Mechanics that are on this forum will give you an idea
what your in for.

repairman003 is on a distinguished road

Axle seal leaking ? Looks like pass. side. Have to remove axle to put new seal in.Can use a seal driver or a large socket the size of the seal to drive it in.
