'06 Rear Gear oil change?? tube?

So I get all ready to do the rea gear oil change.

the '06 has the plug at the 3o'clock position so I have clear plastic tube syringe all ready.

BUT the tube won't go in the hole....seems there are gears there. Who put those in there????

Reread the post with the syringe pics....seems I am suppose to use IV tubing.

So that will get between the gear teeth?

Is this my problem? (ah, no jokes that you know I have more problems than that. )

I found that out the hard way too. I just split the final drive because A) this was easier to drain and B) I could moly up the splines.

Easy to do too and no worries of losing some plastic tube in your FD.
