I can't get my rear differential plugs out. I don't want to spend any more time on it. Going to take it in. What should I expect to pay for a drain and fill?
what are you using to get them out? being a CA car, shouldn't be too much rust/corrosion.

I can't get my rear differential plugs out.
Once upon a time mine were super tight too. Couldn't break them loose by hand. So I got a 1/2" drive breaker bar, 14" long, and rigged the car jack under it. Nice even pressure and the plugs quickly started to loosen. Just had to keep changing the blocking under the jack to keep the pressure as perpendicular to the breaker bar as possible--lotta force there, could be dangerous if it slipped.

I used a breaker bar too. They were very tight on my 'new' (to me) '91 VLSD when I recently checked it.
