I accidentally (I think) drained the differential fluid

Customer Question

I accidentally (I think) drained the differential fluid instead of the oil. What a Putz. If that's the case how do I add the fluid for that?

Ok.

Is is an Auto or manual transmission?

How much oil came out when you drained it?

Can you see another dipstick on the drivers side of the transmission, accessed from the engine bay?

Oh yes, I believe it has a fill plug above the RH driveshaft.

It has a level plug a bit lower, smaller plug.

75w90 diff oil.
