Default Diff question.....

Ok I just took the back of my Ultra comp LX off for the first time. There is grease in the diffs. If I'm looking at the right thing. lol!! I have heard people say clean it out and put diff oil in it. My thing is that the bottom is open. How will the oil stay in it?
Sorry for the noob ? but I'm really trying to get good at these things and learn how they work and not get run off again like last time. LOL!! I'M in it for good this time.

What they mean is to disassemble the actual diff unit itself, clean the inside of the case and the internal spider gears, and to fill the case with silicone fluid. After reassembling the diff, we put a little grease (mobil 1 synthetic) on the outside ring and pinion.

Do a google search and I'm sure you'll find a how-to article.
