Default XC70 Rear Diff Drain/Fill Port


2005 petrol XC70.

Could someone confirm that the drain/fill port for the rear diff, (not the Haldex), is the paler bolt on the left of the attached photo, please? This was taken from the rear facing forwards. If not, where on eath is it? Nothing in VIDA or online seems to fit my car, (VIDA calls this bolt a 'flange screw' and shows the plug to be on the front like an 02 car).

Best regards,

Apologies for not completeing this thread in this section as well.

This was kindly confirmed as the fill port in the V70 section. If you have this set up, replacing/ topping up the diff is very easy with a big syringe and length of brake bleed sized tube.
