Seal leaking diff fluid in swing arm. Not sure if i have to pull whole rear end apart. If so should i change everything while i have it apart? Has anyone dealt with anything like this? Hopfully someone can help. All tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

you should be able to sneak that seal in but getting it out is going to be tough. not much room to work. take the brake lever off and use some sort of pointy hook and see if you can roll it out. otherwise you will have to separate the rearend from the swing arm to access the brake assembly. it is supposed to be pretty easy, just unbolt it and separate the 2 halves but mine did not go easy i had to pull it apart and press it together. i had to get in with tiny vice grips and take the 2 screws out that hold the metal gasket in place. the shaft was pulling the entire brake assembly out and was bending that gasket. fyi the manual says you need to replace that gasket but i didnt and it was fine. there are no crush zones in it, it looks more like a spacer
