That depends.
Are you mechanically incllined?
The drive shaft is easily removed with 4 bolts at the rear and then it slides off of the tailshaft on the trans.
The seal is probably something you pry out with a hook tool.
Setting the new seal in can often be done with a large socket used as a drift.
Then, reinstall the driveshaft.

Yea, pretty simple. just remove the u-joint at the read end and slide the driveline out. You can then pry the seal out and install a new one.

Tips:
Pack the back side of the seal with some grease to keep the spring from popping out while you install it.
Have some rags handy as some trans fluid will probably come out when you slide the driveline out, you wont need all of it but have a quart of trans fluid so you can replace any that leaks out.

Nothing to be afraid of.

Try googling tailshaft seal replacement.
It is going to be the same on dang near any machine with front engine, rear wheel drive.

My bad I ment I CAN DO THIS!!!! But will the whole axle slide out? There is two parts, one goes throught a carrier thing.

So just take the 4 bolts off and slide it through the back??

Center support should be no problem at all, but you will still have to remove the u-joint/flange at the rear end and just drop the whole thing as one piece, center support and all.

Oh, and one more thing, if you end up splitting the two drivelines apart, make sure you mark where they were in relationship to each other, you want it to put it back together exactly how it came apart.

Thanks will mark everything. Nissan wanted $399.98 for the job. I laughed and said just give me the seal. OTD was $76.26 and thats with a air dam for my front bumper.

Got it done in about 3.5 hours. The hardest part was the jacking, I hate scissor jacks. Ate some Arbys and let my son help out.
