in case n e 1 was wandering. the rear differential has 2 square 3/8 head bolts on the left side of it. a 3/8 socket wrench fits perfectly. there is an upper and lower bolt. the lower for draining and the upper for filling. the filling part can be difficult w/out a plan. i used a 1 quart funnel(commonly used to fill transmission fluid) with 5 feet of tubing. my wife held the funnel down low while i put the other end of the tube into the fill hole and she raised the funnel up high to fill. the rear diff held 1 and 1/4 quart. i used honda fluid
