I have an 87 5KT, but I think it will apply to your car as well. The
factory assumed the diff oil will never have to be changed, so there's
no drain plug. You have to figure out how to drain oil through the
filler plug, and sorry, I can't think of any other way to do this than a
suck-o-matic machine at the dealer. Filling is simple, just pour the oil
until it overflows.
