Customer Question
Can you service the...

Can you service the differential fluid on a 2013 ATS? My dealership is trying to convince me that for some reason it cant be done and I should replace the whole thing.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, which fluid are you talking about? And what color and consistency is it?

The fluid in the rear differential... I just started noticing a low scraping/grinding sound when I accelerate, which seemed to be coming from the rear diff. I always thought you could service them with oil, but the dealership is "Inferring" that it can't be done on an ATS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your ATS yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried... I heard the sound and brought it into the dealership

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats it... just the question
