Yes, either 0.48 quart or 0.7 quart for rear differential. Since you mentioned the leak issue on Chevy, and the factory fill is low too, I believe Mazda originally intended to use 0.7 quart for rear differential, then reduced to 0.48 / 0.37 quart due to the possible leak issue, although we haven’t seen any leak reports here (yet?) after people filled with 0.7 quart.Yup. My 2.5t takes a perfect 5.5 w/filter if I go by the stick.
And thanks for posting the info. With that info I would go to the hole and disregard the .48 qt instructions. But there is clearly an error on the diff data. Either .48 is correct or the fill hole is correct. Another poster says the fill hole is above the axle seal which is similar to the Chevy situation. I wonder if there has been a revision to the manual. Leaving the factory now to the fill hole would make me think yes.
