Fluid level in rear differential

Recommended Posts


According to my workshop manual the fluid amount should be at 1.14 litres,but with the back of the car jacked up with the rear wheels 6 inches off the ground its only possible to get around 900 ml of ep90 into the dif before the fluid starts running out of the filler plug hole.  Any suggestions or do i just need to jack it up higher??

Hi Guys, thanks for the input. Probably shouldve mentioned that on level ground the amount was still around 900ml.  Managed to get another 50/60 ml in through the filler  and refitted the plug. A bit happier now its at around 90% full.
