Trans and diff oil spec and capacity?

Postby Damien89 » Sat May 05, 2018 11:23 am

Hi everyone, want to change the trans and diff oil, but owners manual only has spec for trans oil, not even how much it uses. no mention of what spec is to be used for rear diff.
Trans oil spec is 75w FE WSS-M2C200-D2, apart from ford oil theres almost no other brand that has this spec, at least i haven't found another brand.
Anyone know what spec the rear diff uses? Mk8 diffs are different from mk7 diffs.
And dont say they are filled for life.
Oh and my mk8 is rwd.
Thanks.

Sorry I've thrown the bottle away. The man behind the counter put my reg into his screen and it told him what type to give me. I've looked in the Haynes manuel for the MK7 (same box) and spec is detailed there.

And you just used whatever the man behind the counter gave you?
