Hi. Plan to change the front (AT) and rear differential fluids myself and have a couple of questions.

Front: I quess the fluid is removed thru the dipstick so what would I need to do that?

Rear: What tool and size do I need to open the drain and filler plug?

Automatics have a separate compartment for the front diff. Both this and the rear diff probably use GL5 75W-90 oil - check the owners manual. ATF in the gearbox itself.

Subes usually have drain plugs on all the transmission parts, but I can't be certain about yours...

Rear diff plugs require a 1/2 inch socket driver.
