Rear Pinion Seal Leak?

Hey guys I tried searching around for this problem and I think its the rear pinion seal leaking. I found some instruction on how to replace the front pinion seal, but nothing for the rear. Is the rear similar to replace? Is it okay for me to keep driving like this? In a few weeks I should have the time to fix it, but if it's a major problem I might take action sooner. Here's a picture of the leak...



Thanks in advance!

It's the same process. Maybe a dif part, can't remember. But you just drop the drive shaft, and take the holding nut out... And the rest you can probably figure out from your other write up.

Okay thanks. Will it damage anything if I continue driving like this for a few more weeks. I'm not sure when the leak started.

Not as long as it doesn't get low on fluid.
