Having few problems. Decided to check diff oils and the front diff was lil brown to say least. So decided to change. Now assuming i am changing the correct part i found 3 plugs, one on the end facing the back, one on passenger side and another further down towards the front facing drivers side about same height as the passenger side, i assume the drive side is the plug i fill via, now when i emptied the oil i got 4ltrs come out, no drama as its always possible last person under filled, tho expected around 5ltrs, so when i started to refill new oil i got just above 2ltrs in before it started to come out of the hole.

I am wondering if anyone has any good diagram i can look at, i have a haynes pdf manual but for what ever reason i cannot find anything to do with any oil changes. Or if anyone has any pics that show exactly where all the drains are and where to fill back up. I have done an extensive google search and all i can find is ppl asking about capacity which i am not looking for.

If it helps its an 11/01 gu st manual (so think thats gu III )

Thanks

The front diff is between the engine and tranny. On the passenger side and has a black rubber tube and plastic fitting. It's in front of the fire wall. Slightly hard to get at.:)

Take out bungs on the side of gearbox and transfer. Pretty easy. Use auto trans fluid for transfer

just so i dont miss anything, the 3 bungs i have found, the blue circle is the one i re fill via? and the reds are drainage bungs?

these are for the transfer case and gear box, is that right, or are they separate?

Should have 4 bungs all up. Don't forget auto trans fluid for your transfer
