There is fill plug on the passenger side of the differential drive shaft side where the axle tube meets the differential housing. Your going to need a 3/8" ratchet with the extension and a hammer. Once you get the ratchet with the extension on the fill bolt, which is a square bolt that the extension fits right in. Use the hammer to tap the ratchet to break the bolt loose from the differential, remove the bolt once it has loosen enough with just the ratchet. The Canyon must be leveled to fill the differential, fill till the fluid starts to flow out and reinstall the fill plug. Don't over torque for future fluid check, the bolt is tapered so it will not leak. Good luck and hope this helps.

Got an 04 Canyon that had the same problem. Under the dash on the passenger side there's a speed switch that controls your fan. Cost me $20 at the parts store. Easy to replace.
