I am doing service today. Rear diff was a breeze, front diff looks to be a PITA! Front drain plug is on passenger side, but where is the fill plug???? Is it the vent line???
I had some short allens that fit in a socket and I stuck the one that fits in the plug and used a 1/4 inch wrench through the hole to turn the allen. They really could of done a better job on that design.What was the trick on the rear diff. I spent about two hrs. on the rear trying to use a allen wrench thru that little hole in the bottom support brace. Could not get it from the side. could not get a straight shot at it, had to work thru the hole in the bottom. About stripped the allen out.
I DID strip out the f'in allen. Thats where the PITA really started.I used a 5mm wobble ext from the side. OMG it was so tight and almost stripped the allen head out. So finally I cut the little hole out in the bottom a little bigger and came up that way. WHAT A PAIN IN THE ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They could have made the bottom brace a bolt on to make things a lot easier. NO thought from BRP on that one. And I'm a pretty good mech. What if that had stripped out, then the whole rear diff. would have to come out and drilled and retapped.
