Nubby55 On a C-clip D35 the bearing is pressed in the housing, you will need a puller to get the old one out and then with the right mandrel you can tap the new one in. Look your axle over very good at the place where the bearing rides on it, if it has any wear it needs to be changed out, the bearing rides right on the shaft, no inter race in the bearing, they really suck! if shaft is worn that can make the seal leak, good luck. Oh and someone will come along and tell you to change to a Ford 8.8!

DirtyRob It sounds more like a wheel cylinder. Is your master cuylinder full of fluid?

MickP Figure I will replace the bearing also when I get it apart, is the bearing pressed on the axle or is it in the housing itself......I could use some direction here also as how to go about replacing the bearing....Thanks Again for any help!

ARod0411 And yes, you have to drain the fluids from the differential and open up the pumpkin to remove the c-clip, assuming you have stock D35, to remove the axle shafts and get to the seal. Hope this helps.

ARod0411 Had the same happen at the rear driver side wheel. The axle seal on that side was leaking.
Autozone had a nice manual on how to change said axle seal:
