Seal leaking, front differential

The front differential seal is leaking on my 2008 Polaris Sportsman 700 X2. How hard is it to replace the seal? How do I disconnect the front drive shaft so I can put a new seal in?
Also the front differential filler plug is very hard to get to. I am thinking I could replace the plug with a hose fitting and run a hose straight up to where the ADC filler bottle is. Then I could change the front differential fluid faster and easier. I don't know how much pressure is in the front differential. Any ideas?
Much Thanks!

got it all fixed. Easier to do than I thought it would be. I put in a "filler tube" so it is easy to fill and change the demand fluid. I used a clear line so I could see when it was full.
