I was doing fluid changes on the front and rear final/diff/.  Rear was no problem (actually making DIY for it now).

For the front, I was able to locate the fill plug, but had a very hard time locating the drain plug (large hex bolt on lower part of the body).

There appeared to be a large x brace covering the area.  Did not want to pull it as I am not sure if this would weaken something and cause problems.


Does anyone have input/info on how to access the front final drive drain bolt so I can drop the fluid, put in new one and make a DIY for it?   

Thanks.

Also, is the x brace I refer to in pics below, the front axle carrier that the manual talks about?  

 

 

Here is what I see from underneath, and a pic from manual where the plugs should be.
