FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS



Use standard hypoid-type gear oil GL-4, SAE 90W when refilling the steering gear.

FLUID LEVEL CHECK



See Figure 1

Every year or 15,000 miles (24,000 km) you should check the steering gear housing lubricating oil. The filler plug is on top of the housing and requires a 14mm wrench for removal. The level should be at or near the top of the housing.
