Don't forget to take the rear brakes and brake backing plate off after you take the two big axle nuts off the brake side.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

sure..i can try...lol..first off..remove the right side..brake cover..when you get to the brake drum..don't try to force it off..most honda's have a tiny o-ring around the axle right there..it's hard to see.not sure if you have one on yours..but check to see...remove it..then slide the brake drum off..remove the brake shoes..take all your brake cables off..lay them aside somewhere out of the way..unhook the air breather hose that leads to the brake backing plate..now..inside ..where your shoes were..should be 4 bolts in the center..take them out..after you get them out..the whole brake assembly should come off..now..if you don't have the left rear side off..wheel..hub..take it off..jam nuts and all..after you got all this..the axle should slide out from the rear right..hope this helps.

Which dust seal are you talking about? Are you talking about the dust seal in the rear brake drum cover? If you are, the inner seal in your differential case is leaking. And if that seal is leaking, then your axle bearings are probably bad, too.

Here is a link to Riva online parts finder:

Rivamotorsports.com's 1999 Honda ATV TRX300FW FOURTRAX 4X4 Parts List

#31 and #32 are the seals that you need. #32 is the one that's letting it leak into the axle tube housing and letting it run out the brake cover dust seal.
