Leaky Rear End

My rear end seal seems to be leaking. Its not coming out fast but the bottom of the diff is definitely wet. The exhaust also has something dark on it directly behind the diff and when I walk behind the car, it smells funny, like gear lube. My question is, how difficult is it to change the seal? I don't know how long its been like this but I want to get it fixed before I ruin it.

its not hard at all, i never did it before and i went under the car and could figure it out really quick. just make sure to get the right gasket seal and the right lube. buy the gallon version of the 90W or at the least a plastic pump so you can pump the new gear oil through the fill hole. fill it untill it dips back through the fill hole.
