Easy job, just drain the box of fluid, remove the driveshaft, replace the seal, replace the shaft.fill the box back up

75w/80

Also, yeah you'll need to slide the shaft all the way out, so that's a jack up, wheel off, hub nut undone, wishbone popped, shaft out job at the minimum.

Fairly simple tbh, and the seals shoukdn't be that expensive from Citroen.
