remove shaft, use 34 or 32 mm impact socket to remove nut, slide yoke out, remove old seal, install new seal, install yoke and driveshaft. top off diff fluid. 45 mins worth of work man.

i've done it twice.

Pinion Seal. A screw driver and a hammer or a chisel and a hammer work best to get it out. The correct procedure involves installing a new crush sleeve and re-torquing to the correct turning torque, but you can do it the way everyone else said and it should be fine.
