My passenger side inner seal is leaking after 16 years/150,000 miles and itíll be the first time itís ever come apart.
What I found difficult was knowing how deep to seat it. I saw some posts saying the depth has to be just right and I thought it was. But trying to get into position to really see into that space is hard to begin with, and I wear glasses so I also have to be able to get an angle where everything is in focus.

First off, thanks for the help. It's been really wet here, but my wife I finally had opportunity to make another attempt.

Long story shortened...I bought the hub puller off of Amazon. The larger of the two fit, not great, but it worked. I cranked it down until it started bending and then applied some heat. When I cranked some more, the axle started moving. There was a pretty good band of rust on the splines. Problem solved? Of course not.

Getting the old seal out, I managed to gouge the diff with the seal removal tool. Luckily, it was mostly near the outer edge so I deburred the gash with some emery cloth, cleaned it up, put on a dab of high temp RTV, and installed the seal, and then a re-booted axle. So far, 2 days and no leak. Fingers crossed. But....

Now a have a scrape-scrape sound when turned hard right. We didn't hear it when reassembling everything, but it's there when driving. From the cab, it sounds like the back plate touching the rotor intermittently. We did bend it while working, but we had it bent back, I thought, so I'm not convinced that is it. We plan on putting it back on stands this afternoon to try and figure out what it it.

Good to hear that you got it off. The gouge is no biggie. My guess would be the backing plate too. There's some parts of it that run pretty close to the rotor. Hopefully it's that simple an issue.

No noise at all when up on stands, so I just pulled on the backing plate a little before setting it back down and sure enough, it's quiet! And still no leaks. I love this forum. Thanks again, everyone!
