I poked around and didn't see any info on this.

It's an 83GL 4WD 1.8L 4 speed with dual range.
The front axle seals on the transmission are leaking.
It went from a small drip every so often to a steady drip.

My questions is this. My manual has no info on replacing these and suggests that it be done by shop or the dealer.
Is this something I can do if I get ahold of a special tool?
Is there any trick to it?
Or should I just find a shop that can do it and suck it up?

I just hate to have to pay a shop for something as trivial as seals.
Maybe I need to get a different manual. (mine is one of the cheap Haynes, does the job most times)

Thanks for any help.
