Replace this EVERY time. You do NOT need to take the diff apart. The seal is
retained by a split ring which you just yank out of the bore. Then yank the
seal out. If you don't have a seal puller, use a cotter-pin puller (for
     Lightly grease the bore and pound the new seal in with a 3/4" socket,
or other suitable cylindrical driver. Don't forget to put the split ring
back in. As with all seals, grease the lips of the seal. Grease the portion
of the input shaft the lips bear on. Get the idea? Greasy.

While I have this drive train out of the car and separated, should I
replace the Clutch release bearing shaft seal? and If so, do I need to
take the dif apart to get to it? And is this something I should try to
accomplish? I don't have any 'special' tools. Are they required?
