In a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherrokee Laredo? I see the fill plug but can't locate the drain plug. I have done this before to my truck, but never to my Jeep. The truck had a drain plug on the bottom. I guess different differentials are different. If it doesn't have a plug on the bottom do you have to take off the whole cover?

If theres no drain plug you just remove the cover to drain it.

SUPER-JIFFY-OIL CHANGE PLACES

ATTEMPT TO S.UCK IT OUT THRU THE FILL HOLE

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO A GOOD JOB THIS WAY

YES, THEY GET A GOOD BIT OF THE OIL OUT

OIL FLOATS ON TOP OF WATER

THE STUFF YOU REALLY WANT OUT, IS IN THE BOTTOM

MORE THAN A CUPFUL OF DEBRIS, WATER, METAL ETC. REMAINS IN THE BOTTOM

SO DO THIS CORRECTLY......THIS IS YOUR BABY!

A REPAIR MANUAL COULD BE YOUR BEST BUDDY
