Icon5 Front pinion seal leaking OMG!!!!

Ok got my truck inspected today and my registered ford mechanic told me the front pinion seal is leaking. Great and ford warranty ended. So now should i take it into the shop and have them fix it or do it myself. If i did it myself how hard would it be?

Mine is on its 3rd seal, and it's leaking. Honestly, I'm tired of screwing with it. I just keep an eye on the fluid, and let it ride.

Ford replaced mine on my extended service plan in April and now its back there as I speak being replaced for nothing. If its under a year or 20,000 km and it leaks again they do it for nothing. Thats Canada anyway.

no special tools needed, book time calls for one hour labor and the seal may cost from 10-25 bucks.
