rear axle removal help needed asap

I changed rear axle fluid the other day. I noticed today i have a good leak on pass side brake area. i assume its an axle seal. i dont think their is anything else there.
I have installed axles on a 9 inch rear before in my hot rod days.
How do I remove the axle? I pulled the wheels off to look tonite. I see howto remove the caliper, then was unsure hopw the rotor came off. Their are a bunch of bolts on the outer most part of the assembly under the center cap area of the wheel. Is something under those that remove the rotor assembly?The 4 large bolts on the studs on the back side of the backing plate area of the brake, do they hold the exle inplace? Does the bearing and the seal stay attached to the axle when removed? Not pressed into the housing?
need to fix this asap,itsmy wifes truck. Its a dually if it matters
