Default p38 axle seal replacement?

Cant find my rave but is it a hard replacement. I changed out bearings on my 98 disco while doing breaks. I do all my repairs so just looking at a time frame with each side. Rear left and right front are leaking pretty good. Thanks

actually to replace the rr just take off the caliper and bracket as one assembly, lay aside and then take off the connector to the abs and take the bolts out of the axle and pull the entire axle out as an assembly. you can do the same with the front as well. Just disconnect the connector to the abs sensor.

Thanks I seen the link that lrscott posted. Do the big nut behind the wheel cap still have to come off? Don't look difficult at all actually. I know that the d1 are a different beast but changing wheel bearings on was easy. Gonna order the seals from roverparts.com tomorrow. Ill let you know how I make out. Thanks

no the nut doesn't have to come off but its a safe bet on the front the entire thing is frozen on so you might have to take the rotor off to chizel out the hub assembly.
