: Anyone replaced diff fluid on E60?

I was planing on changing it tomorrow, and looked under it briefly today to find no drain plug. I saw the fill on the diff cover. Guess I might have to pop the cover to drain it. didn't get a gasket though. Anyone know if the lower bolt holes run all the way through the housing?

Charles - did you figure it out and change the fluid? I may be changing mine soon.

If you guys cannot figure that out, simply take one axle out of the car. Turn car on side until all rear end fluid runs out.

As you mother always told you, don't forget to wipe.
