240D Fuel leak and rear differential leak

So my rear differential is leaking oil. I have never messed with the rear diff. It seems to be leaking on the side where the drive shaft attaches. Is this an easy thing to fix. Also i punctured a fuel line coming from the tank when i was sandblasting the control arm in the rear. There are 3 lines together and they are all really rusty. How hard are they to replace, and also is there a shut off on the tank somewhere so the fuel stops leaking.

fuel tank , line leak

there is no cut off you have one main fuel line with a fuel strainer in the tank if that line is leaking you need to siphon all fuel out and get a new line you can stop the fuel leak with a pair of vise grips crimp the hose to stop the fuel from leaking, you have three lines one is a vent one is a return and the odd one by itself is the main fuel line, all these metal lines can be made up with new line 5/16 will work you can use pex also very cheap and works great will not rust just use hose and clamps to connect it where it needs to go. 5/16 pex......

rear differential seal

it sounds like your side cover seal is leaking on your differential, axle has to be removed to repair this.
