You remove the cover to drain it all out and after you put the cover back on with a new gasket or sealer, then you find the fill plug on the front facing side of the rear and remove it, it will probably be a 3/8 square drive plug and fill the rear thru that hole until the fluid runs out then re-insatall the plug.

WHEN YOU GO TO CHECK THE LEVEL NEXT TIME (SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE)

WHEN YOU REMOVE THE PLUG

THE JUICE SHOULD START RUNNING OUT!

YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO DIG IN THERE W/ YOUR PINKY FINGER!

IF IT DON'T RUN OUT, YOU NEED TO TOP IT OFF SO IT DOES!

IN MY PICS BELOW, THIS IS HOW I FILL/ TOP OFF MY FRONT AND REAR AXLES, TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE (WITH MY KINDA JUICE) ON MY TWO JEEPS

THE TIP WILL SORTA SQUEEZE LOCK INTO THE HOLE, AND YOU CAN PUMP FROM A FEW FEET AWAY

THE PUMP WILL SCREW ONTO QUART OR GALLON JUGS AND MOST AUTO PARTS STORES HAVE 'EM FOR $5-$7

WHEN THE JUICE STARTS TO RUN BACK ON ME, I GIVE IT TWO ADDITIONAL SQUIRTS THEN STICK THE PLUG BACK IN

AS YOU WILL DISCOVER, IT WILL BE A SEEMINGLY SLOW FILL PROCESS, AND "ONE PUMP/ SQUIRT" IS NOT A WHOLE BUNCH JUICE. THIS IS A LOT EZier THAN TRYING TO FILL IT W/ A SQUIRT TIP QUART BOTTLE BY HOLDING THE BOTTLE UP
