Oil where it should not be..!!!

I was just doing some checking beneath the front of the LR90... I found some oil where it should not be so I thoght I would ask advice...

I initially saw that the drivers side brake disk, which is vented, has around the outer diameter, oil which looks like it came through the vents to get to the outer diameter.. So i looked closer... There is oil on the inner part of the brake disk.. Not on the part where the pads make contact with the shiney faces, but, on the inner recessed part where the bolts connect it to the hub...

Maybe a seal has gone, and if so, although I have never done anything on a LR before, it looks like it should not be too dificult...

Hope someone can advise..

Cheers

probably from the swivel seal [the big shiney round bit the steering moves on] or the inner hub seal is leaking.

Must be teh inner hub seal, because the swivel seal is very visible, and the only oil I can see there is a couple of mm around it which I would not see as a problem... Will take a phot of it and put it up to make sure..

Most likely the inner hub seal is weeoing a bit, a new one should cure it & clean off all the old crud too.

Ok, so I then looked on ebay and found this...!!

Just wondering, if I change this part, should I then also change the gasket on the ball, or is that a lot more work??
