A few questions regarding rear axle
1. Other then vent line, where to put oil in to differential?

2. Can a differential bearing be replaced without having to take entire assembly out?

I was going to replace wheel bearing and seal after having somebody else re-seal the differential cover;
when I got the cover off, there was no oil in the housing and also noticed one bearing worn enough for rollers to fall out

Do you
have the same problem?

Fill plug 3/8 square on front of DIFF housing ie. Drive shaft side at level of axle tube. Will need to remove chunk to replace bearings. Suggest a profesional do this or replace DIFF with bone yard one.
