    2. A01V8YO

      Using a 10 mm straight hexagon wrench and 10 x 12 mm long offset wrench, remove the No. 2 transfer case plug (for filler) and gasket.

    3. A01V9G4C01
      *a 0 to 5.0 mm (0 to 0.196 in.)

      Check that the oil level is between 0 to 5.0 mm (0 to 0.196 in.) from the bottom lip of the No. 2 transfer case plug (for filler) hole.

      If the result is not as specified, add transfer oil.

      Oil grade
      Toyota Genuine Differential gear oil LT API GL-5 or equivalent
      Viscosity
      SAE 75W-85

      Note


      • When adding oil, pour it slowly.

      • Too much or too little oil will lead to transfer problems.

    4. If the oil level is low, refill oil after checking for oil leaks.

    5. A01VAXAC01
      *1 10 mm Straight Hexagon Wrench
      *2 12 mm Hexagon Socket Wrench
