There iis a filler plug on the driveshaft side of the pumpkin. It is unique in that it is removed by inserting the square end of a ratchet extension (3/8th drive) into the plug. When removed gear oil should just tricke out with the car sitiing normally on the level. If not add the proper grade lubricant (see owners manual) until it does trickle out.

Good luck and let us know. :)
