Axle help

I need some help with the DANA 35.
The "fill plug"
Where is it?? Is it the rubber plug thing on the back of the differential cover? If so, and if it is overfilled, do I just let it drain until it stops or do I have to do something else??? Thanks

Nuke

its the rubber plug. a little overfilled is ok. if it comes gushing out when you pull the plug, id be curious as to how it got so overfilled (water contamination?)

Ok thanks. I'll go fix it now, the vent hose is leaking like crazy so people said that's a good way to see if it's overfilled.

Thanks.

I have no clue, I talked to him this past weekend, he said he had to get a new one because he heard a loud PING in the other one he had so I guess the people who filled it overfilled??
