Depends where the oil is coming from as to whether you need to strip and rebuild the final drive.
If you are able to use tools with a reasonable level of competency then you should be able to sort the problem yourself with the aid of a good manual.
Most important is to keep to all the tolerances regarding shimming.
Other option is to see if you can locate a second hand or rebuilt unit.
assumption is the mother of all f*** ups.
