yep, thats how many miles I have too, but my rear seals are fine. I'm glad I replced mine earlier this week, since its been raining since about 8am and isnt supposed to stop until noonish tomorrow.
At least mine wasn't to the point water leaked in. Wish I could tell you how to remove it, but I dont.
