I'm not sure if my legacy will be up in time before the meet might have to bring the Tribeca instead. But I for sure want to make it! It's been so long since I went

Hmm... Mine is black, I wonder if that one has been replaced?

Anyway, clear you live on the east coast with the salt roads. Pull it off, clean it up, and put it back on with dielectric if it feels tight, or, if like mine and it feels loose, go to the auto parts store and try to match it. I actually haven't done it myself yet. It's easier to ignore, but i have to fix it soon otherwise my wife will think she needs a new car between this and the power locks and window occasionally not working (small annoyance, but I need to find the ground that is common).

This one is the rear diff connector right? What's the black one plugged into the rear of the diff for? The white connector was just tapped on the connector with black electrical tape.

Also where is the drain and fill hex plugs are they on the side of the diff and not the normal way with the non cooling fins?

ewww, electrical tape. That's probably been replaced. I bought water proof heatshrink type spade connectors to replace the OEM one as it was beyond hope. It's a little difficult to solder underneath the vehicle so that was my compromise.

Yes, the drain/fill plugs are on the side of the diff. I believe it's a 10mm hex.

Do you know what size the connector is? All I can find large enough is 12-10 gauge 3/8" female disconnect connectors.

I used a standard terminal for a 14-16 gauge cable (usually has the blue sleeve). You can either heatshrink your own or buy one with a heatshrink connector. Gold plating isn't a bad idea.

I would guess the 10-12 gauge connector would work as well, but not be a snug fit.

Btw the fill hole on the rear diff seems to be a 10 mm hex and the drain a torx in some size?

I got mine at Fleet Farm (a midwest Farm supply + tons of other stuff store) in their automotive section. It shouldn't be impossible to find at a good hardware store or an automotive place.

The plugs are the same size, yes.

For those who have the soundbot how did you run the wire so you can still close the cup holder area?
