    I noticed something leaking down my tires about a month ago. I took my tire and and drum off and inside was full of grease. I'm guessing this is the seal for the axle thats gone bad. How hard is it to replace it? ANy special tools? DO you have to take the brakes off?
    Thanks

    Yes, you need to take the brakes off, they are probably contaminated with oil, and even a little bit ruins the pads, so you should replace them.
