      Come on Han, DIFF fluid, 10mm. 17mm on trans.

      It will STINK, replace it with good Synth fluid like Redline or Amsoil, and make sure it is good for LSD.

      At least it's German

        oops! You're right Mike, it's 10mm....

        I read diff and thought tranny.

          Isn't there a rule that you make sure you can break loose both bolts so that you don't have an empty diff with a stuck fill bolt.

            yup, you should remove the fill plug first, then the drain plug.

            the reason is that if you drain the fluid, and then can't remove the fill plug, you're stuck with an empty diff (won't be able to drive).

            removing the fill plug also makes it drain quicker/smoother.

                The diff dosen't have a drain plug. Just a fill plug. You need to use a suction device to remove the old fluid.

                  Actually it does have two plugs. Go check it right now.

                  Nice to see you on here Ped, I drove by you a few weeks ago on Murray while I was driving my corolla. My friend was in the car with me and he loved your car!!
