Changed my PTU and rear drive unit. Each only had about 1/2 a quart in them and took about the same amount to refill. I needed a 10mm hex socket, 15/16 wrench and a 17mm socket to change both fluids. Don't forget to clean off the magnets on the lower drain plugs for both units.

I did my PTR and RDU the other day. Pretty easy to do. I used just over a quart of lube. I also did my engine coolant. Was a PIA to find the pet**** for the radiator and had to disassemble some of the plastic brush guards under the front (passenger side). I used a set of pliers (wide head) to open the pet****. I got just under a gallon of coolant out. Replaced that. Going to drive for a few days and then drain and refill again so I can get more new stuff in and old out. Entire job cost about 18 bucks.
