Default Diff oils??

Hi all,

Ive recently baught a TT EB4 S3 and had my front diff apart, noticed it runs just grease, should I change it over to oil? Also whats the go with putting it in, what weights, how much, is they only way to fill it by removing the whole diff?

Any help appreciated.

If you want the option to tune the diffs, you should clean out the grease and change to diff oil. Buggy's usually start out with something like 7000 in the front, 10,000 in the middle and 3000 in the rear. Here's a godd starting read on diff basics -

Thanks for that info Duster,

Whats the normal amount of fluid To put in FR, MID, Rear. Also the diffs in mine dont seem to be fully sealed, do you put a sealant on the housing when puttig it back together, I noticed it has a gasket underneath where it bolts down to the chassis, I assume you un bolt the diif housing fill it upside down and re bolt back on, sorry if it seems a dump question, Im use to diffs with filler plugs lol.

Edit: I think that was a dumb question, you fill the diff housing where the spider gears are, am i right??
And just use grease on the crown/pinion gears.
