How easy is it to change the rear diff fluid on a 95 Legacy?

Very easy, no lift needed at all. Need a 1/2 drive to get them off.
Like the title says, is it easy to change the rear diff fluid on a 95 Legacy? Will the car have to be lifted?
MAke sure you get the top off first, this is your fill plug.
Bottom is drain plug.

Be sure the fluid is hot before you drain it, you will not have to jack it up, it will come right out. Drive the car for a while before or change it when you are coming back from a 5 plus mile trip somewhere. This will also get a lot more of the old fluid out when it is hot.
Yeah, it's as simple as he said. If you want to help get the relatively thick fluid out faster you can jack up the front end of the car to tilt the diff back, but to fill the car should be sitting on level ground.

Note: I was watching him fill the front diff through the fill tube when my eye caught a large piece of the aluminum/cardboard cap liner swirling down into the funnel and fortunately I was able to scoop it out! As the say... it ain't rocket surgery, ya know!

It's all about the the Six Ps... prior preparation prevents piss poor performance!
What a twerp! Always remove the entire seal before pouring!
