Need to change my oil and dif. fluids on my machine. What is the actual level of the oil in the front and rear diff on this model. The manual is pretty vague on this. I know how much to put in but any help would be appreciated.

I don't know about your model year. On my 08, there are three plugs. One to fill, one to drain, and the middle is the oil level. Similar to a truck differential. Once the oil starts coming out of the middle hole it's full. Again I do not know if it is the same for your model year though. Is the diff the same?

I know the rear diff has three holes, but on the front you cant see it very well. Mostly worried about the rear one as the little breather bottle had ripped and had to be replaced. Thanks. Just wanted to make sure befor I tear into it.

Again I am not sure on your year. But both diffs are probably the exact same just reversed.

Front one holds 5.8 oz and the back one holds just over 10 oz. Looks like you fill the front one up to the bottom of the fill hole and the rear one you fill till it runs out the fill hole. Not as bad as I first thought. I would guess it would help to warm the thing up first to get the oil to flow better though when draining.
