You can but you need good knowledge of a planetary system and how it is put together
first. I would recommend having the manual with you when doing it. But yes for a mechanically inclined individual it is possible, you will need transmission pliers or inside snap ring pliers the flat end style. you can probably find some pipe or other device and make a seal driver but other than that it is doable.

so what other info do you need? i don't have a manual, they want $159.00 for one, trying to save some money here. i have a garage and tools.

I don't need any info. If you feel you can make the repair then do it, if not then take it in. That's all I am saying.

I can get you torque specs should you require them but otherwise it is pretty straight forward once you remove the planetary housing.
