Front right side diff/axle leak

Problems in Norway!
It is a leak in the front diff right side. I'm pretty sure it is the seal (part: 2402-150). But have not checked it yet. (Can it be something wrong with the axle?)

Is there any special tools needed for changing the seal? Any good idea how to get the old seal out? And hopefully; no need to remove the front differential/gearcase?

Luckily I bought two spare seals a couple of years ago, so I will try to fix it tomorrow!

Seems to be the side that starts to leak first! Mine was caused by the axle had popped out. The clip was weak! Clips are very cheap. Before you tear yours down, try and push the axle back in. You can do this with your Prowler sitting on the ground. It may cure your problem! If not, Drop the front suspension, and remove the knuckle. A sharp pull outward will release the axle. You can remove the seal with a screwdriver, and pliers. The seal is easy to install. Do you have a seal installation tool, or know someone that has one? If not a suitable sized socket will do the same job! Just tap the seal into place until it is seated. I replaced my front axles with the new style that has a ball detent type release, but only after I found axles at a very reduced rate on e-bay!
