Photo Diy- Rear Differential Oil Change

Here's another pictorial of something probably to basic to post, but what the heck.
If you've done it a million times, you don't need to waste your time viewing.

Again, it's geared for the novice DIY'r.

!!!PLEASE NOTE THE INCORRECT TORQUE VALUE FOR THE DRAIN PLUG> IT SHOULD BE 50 Nm FOR BOTH PLUGS!!!!

Well, I got tired of crawling around like a rodent, so I redid the whole enchillada.
The lift is a godsend.
The epoxy floor is even better. You can spill ANYTHING on it and it just wipes up.
You're always welcome to swing by.

question

Do we just replace the drain plug itself or a crush washer on the drain plug??

Thanks for the DIY pictures, this is on my list of things to do over the next two months.

To firstbenzo.... no crush washer present. The WIS specifies cleaning the bolt with a special Locktight Cleanser, then coating the first 3 threads with Optiseal. Speaking with the Benz dealer here, they don't have the material. I've called all around, and I can't track it down.

With the G's, I change the drivetrain oil at much more frequent intervals than specified, as I do with the sedans. I don't get the whole sealing the plug thing.

To ProV1x, I have some more photos at home. I'll post later.

FSS does not specify when to replace rear differential fluid. Should we do it every 30k miles? 60k miles? or 100k miles?
