<< Ok this should be easy. I want to have a local garage change the oil in
the trans/diff and rear differential. The owner's manual states what
oils to be used and I want to follow those specs. (no super-duper
stuff). My questions:
1) Is the trans and the diff up front filled all by one plug ?
Yes.  One fill, two drain plugs.  Make sure you can remove the 17mm allen key 
fill plug prior to draining the oil.

2) what are the capacities of all the units
3) what oils can be used, Castrol brand perhaps ?

Capacity, type and weight are in the owner's manual or Bentley manual, I 
believe.  I'd use a synthetic.

4) where is the drain plug in the rear diff ?


As I recall, the drain plug is down near the bottom.  Should also be a 17mm 
allen key.
