Re: rear axle leak!
Uh Todd, it's an AMC 20, it doesn't have a plug in the rear cover. The plug is in the front of the housing, near the pinion.
Just follow the procedure listed before.
As to changing it, you'll have to pull the shaft, press the bearing off, get a new seal, and reverse assemble, pressing everything back on again. You have the 2 piece axles, assuming it's stock, but I have never known them to be unbolted from one another, hence the pressing on and off.
I would highly recommend a Chilton's, or maybe even a Factory service manual off Ebay. They are invaluable.
Don't take what Brad said personally, we get a lot of the same questions here, even with the first post in the lineup, titled "<font color=blue>Read Before Posting For The FIRST Time!</font color=blue>" by LEVE.
