Break the lugs loose on the wheel on the side to be replaced. Jack up the car and remove the wheel. Take off the rear differential cover and drain out the gear oil. Get a wide pan cause it makes a hell of a mess. You'll need to get a new gasket and about 1 1/2 quarts of new oil, and also limited slip additive. Take off the bearing caps from the differential. (2 bolts per side I think, if I remember right they're either 13 or 15 MM, I'm going from memory here.) You'll also need to take out the support bearing in the middle, it's a little rectangular piece with (I think) an 8 MM bolt holding it in. When that's done, push the axle in towards the center of the differential until you can get the C-clip off of the axle (this is what retains the axle in the diff) It may or may not be necessary to remove the brake disc/drum assembly, I can't remember...Oh, and if the axle is bent like mine was, have fun, I had to cut the lug studs off with a hacksaw to get the axle in far enough to remove the C-clip...This took me about 3 hours to do by myself.
