    Just completed the above, as mentioned in other threads on this site, I am just confirming that by removing the 2 bolts at the base of the front strut and supporting the whole hub assembly (I lashed it to the front spring) there is no other dis-assembly needed to carefully pull out the driveshaft (bolster chisel and a tap), change the seal (drift in with large socket) and replace.

    Completed in less than 1 hour. Top up gearbox oil as some is lost (about 0.25 litres) when you pull the shaft.

    Job done.
    No need to take hub apart, just remove brake pipe and ABS from clips and don't stretch them !!!
