Re: diff & gearbox 1996 RAV4 with crusier pack
Hi! For manual transmissions, there is a center differential lock button on the dashboard that manually locks the front and rear axles. When engaging, an amber "C. Diff Lock" indicator lights on the dashboard. Its just a normal thing. You aren't hearing any beeps, right.

if auto - the level on the dip stick
if manual remove the filler plug in the side of the box and the right amount is when the oil runs out of that fill hole
the oil level is at the thread s of the hole
if there are 2 plugs in the side of the box , remove both and put oil in the upper one until it runs out of the bottom hole replace plugs and do up tight.
point of interest
all manual boxes, transfer cases and diff oil levels are to the bottom of the fill hole thread.
the oil filler and level indicator are usually at the same point which is usually on the side of the gearbox. removethe plug, fill the gear box with the correct oil until the oil starts to pour back out of the plug hole. then replace the plug. (basically)
Are you referring to the front diff,rear diff or transfer case? On any of them gear boxes there is a fill plug and sometimes a drain plug. The fill plug is the plug closer to the top of the gear box. Just turn it out and wipe the metal shavings off it and fill the gearbox with the required gear lube until the lubricant just barely seeps out and that's the fill level. Plug the gear box again and your done. This is standard with gearboxes.
For a manual gearbox, there isn't a dipstick. There is a plug on the LH side of the diff housing part of the gearbox, just rearwards of where the LH driveshaft leaves the diff. Remove this plug, and the box should be filled to this level. This needs to be done on a level surface. If changing the oil, about 2.5 litres will be needed after draining the old stuff.
use 15w-40 for the engine, ATF for the gearbox and 80w-90 for the diffs and transfer box. engine and gearbox have dipsticks for the levels, the diffs and transfer box have removable plugs for level checking, fill until the fluid comes out the level plug.
They dont have a dip stick but do have a bolt that is removed Diff/transfer case and gearbox the bolt you take out is at the height/level that the fluid should be at and its where you fill the diff/gearbox.Its in the side of the gearbox about half way up.
