Its not real hard, im asuming it broke by the wheel flange. Pull your inspection cover slide the pin out, push your axle in till the c clip falls out, change your axle seal clean everything real good, make sure you have no metal in the housing, slide new axle in, put the c- clip in pull the axle back till it stops and slide your pin back in put the bolt back in the pin. Change cover gasket, put fresh gear oil and your done(unless your backing plate got all tore up) hope this helps.
