How do you replace front drive shaft oil seal? 02 Grizzly

Front seal leaking alittle where the front drive shaft goes into the gearbox. Can I just unbolt the gearbox pull it forward and the shaft should pull out?

I know the driveshafts are different on the 02s than my 05 but the rest should be the same. There is a coupling that the drive shaft goes into where the seal is leaking, right? Unbolting the diff and sliding it forward will allow the shaft to fall out. Should be a spring in the coupling and then a coupling nut that needs to be removed with an impact wrench. There's the seal- a little oil will leak out but not much if the bikes near level. Inspect the coupling and shaft splines as the are prone to stripping out, I had to replace shaft and coupling on my 05.
