Changed my rear diff fluid. This differential only has a fill plug so I used a pump and pumped it down as far as I could. I was able to get a little less than half out.

I was thinking that I may do this more often since I cannot get all of the fluid out in one go. Any opinions on this? Should I change my OCI?

What does the diff look like in terms of removing a diff cover. Most rear diffs, even on trucks, don’t have drain plugs.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

I thought I would be able to do that since I've done it before on SUVs but it looks like it's a single enclosure. What makes this especially hard it that even small diameter hose has a hard time finding its way deep into the differential.
