gearbox drain plugs?
Item Subject: Text_1
I just changed the rear diff oil on my '87 5kSQ thanks to some advice
from the Q-list on where the fill plug was located. I used the plug
on the bottom of the case directly below the half shaft to drain.
There is another plug about 18 inches forward of that drain which I
did not open. When I went to do the gearbox oil last night I found a
similar set up, one fill plug level with the half shaft, one drain
plug below the half shaft, and another drain plug 18 inches back near
the driveshaft. Why the 2 drain 1 fill setup or am I missing
something? Will the oil drained from both plugs be refilled through
the single fill plug?
twin '87 5kSQ's
P.S. Someone on the list was wondering about this model of non-turbo
quattro. Mine have the large aero headlights, 130hp NF engine, one
silver, one maroon so I don't know about the white. I believe this
model was only made in '87 and '88.
