Still working on this. Should have out today. Any special process for removing the inner seal itself from the differential? Also. Volvo recommends sae 80w gl5. I could not find locally so I plan to order. Does anyone know how I can tell if I have enough in as some leaked out with the leaky seal. You all have been very helpful to me and I greatly appreciate all the responses.

Got the seal out. Axle came out through the wheel hub opening. Putting in new seal tonight. Still unsure on how much oil I will need to add. Not really a good way to measure. Do I just add until it seeps out the fill hole?
