Recently purchased and going through all systems ... changing fluids, filters, updates, etc. I have seen some information about someone attempting to change the front differential gear oil, but it was iffy at best. It appears to be done by removing one of the CV shafts for refill after draining from drain plug. I haven't looked yet, but is it possible to add gear oil through the breather port if it is even accessible? Maybe install a drain port to drain and fill ... quick connect? Anyone tried this yet?

Thanks for the link ... it does sound a little messy and slow. I was thinking of installing a quick connect valve and using a pump to fill with the required amount ... similar to the pump used for transmission service. We used quick connect valves for engine oil draining and refilling when I was servicing Straddle Carriers with Mercedes diesel engines. I'll post back any information on which direction I decide to go ...
