if the leak is occuring at the differential / inboard end then this is quite involved I'm afraid as the diff has to come out to have the bearing replaced

parts aren't too bad at about £100 for a new bearing and seal but its about 5-6 hours labour to remove the diff, strip it down rebuild it and get it back in the car

sometimes its more cost effective to source a good used unit and do a straight swap as they can be about £100 2nd hand and its then less labour
