Driveshaft Oil Seal
The n/s drive shaft oil seal is weeping. Can anyone talk me through point me at a guide to removing the drive shaft and replacing the seal.
It's a Multispace on a 55 plate.
Would really appreciate a few pointers before I start rather going in blind and winging it.
You need to remove the bottom ball joint from the wheel hub.

Yoy should then be able to pull the suspension strut outwards which will pull the drive shaft out of the gearbox.

Remove old seal with a removal tool or screw in a couple of self tappers into the outer edge of the seal and pull with pliers.

New seal is easy to drift back in, just use a socket big enough to sit on the out part of the seal, then tap it in.

Oil the seal a little then re insert the drive shaft into the gearbox and re assemble everything you took apart earlier.

Jobs a good un
As Hdi said. The drive shaft hub nuts are tight and need to be retorqued after.
As it's the near side one if you detatch the lower ball joint, track rod end and the drop link, you might be able to get the shaft out of the g/box without undoing the hub nut.
