It doesn't technically "meet" the standard as Redline is not going to show up on an approval list. They're saying they built it to meet the standard. It's a bit of false marketing on their part.

That said - I love me some redline diff and trans fluid. It's what I'll be switching to when that time comes.

How did differential lube talk get into this TRANSFER CASE FLUID thread?... this could be extremely confusing and damaging if the wrong lube is used in the transfer case vs the differential!

OK, back on transfer case fluid... I did the drain and fill, 1 QT ATF (NOT gear oil) I chose to use 100% syn Amsoil.

EZ-PEEZY:

1) Snip the two zip ties that hold the end of the solenoid electrical plug and remove, set aside.
2) Remove (14 mm hex) fill plug.
3) Remove drain plug (3/4" or 19mm socket) - do not lose the washer if you plan to use it again.
4) Clean the metal filings off of the drain plug magnet.
5) After complete drain, re-install drain plug, preferably with a with new washer.
6) Fill through fill plug hole until the fluid (ATF in my case) starts to run out.
7) Re-install 14 mm fill plug. I chose to add some Loctite to the threads of mine.

I used 100% Amsoil synthetic ATF fluid. It took very slightly over 1 quart.

I hope these photos are useful.

Cheers!

Just changed our Transfer case for the second time at 68K miles. Took a bit less than a quart. No metal on magnet. First change was at 40K... MBZ ATF/236.14
I was able to get fill bolt off with extension and did not disturb electrical connector...
