Anybody ever filled an AX5 trans from above around the shifter bushing?

I wasn't able to get to the fill hole in order to fill an AX5 trans, and I don't have a fluid pump, so I just pulled the top shifter boot up and out of the way and started squirting around the base of the shifter.

Seems to be working fine...just takes a while with the shifter in place. Had I not installed the transfer case shifter/linkage already, I would simply remove the shifter handle and base and pour directly into the top of the trans.

pulling the shifter out is a easy way to fill it.
just drain as normal and fill with the correct amount.

Harbor freight has a $5 hand pump that will work great for diff an tranny fluid fill. I am not a huge harbor freight fan but if you need a cheap tool that won't get over used. It is a cheap place to get stuff.
