    front or rear, if its the rear take off the fill bolt on the middle of the diff, then take off the drain at the bottom, then refill, use the search button, there is a thread on it

    I recommend replacing the drain plug before refilling the diff.

    But that's just me.

    24mm socket, I needed an air gun to remove mine. Replaced with 2.6 qts of Coastal 75W 90. It's really easy.

    I can't get the low pro transmission fill plug off, it appears to be rounded, any suggestions?
