I want to change the rear diff. fluid on my C280. I don't know when it was done last. First of all, what is it's purpose? What will be better now that I am changing it? And it is supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles? What kind of fluid should I use? Where can I get it?
Where to start? I know it's on the rear axle, but where? How hard is it? Just drain and fill (opening the fill hole first)? No filter? I uses a 14 mm wrench, correct?

Aghh, sorry for all the questions! I plan on doing this myself, OBVIOUSLY! Thanks everyone!
