    Yes it's separate, the long dipstick on the drivers side is the transmission and the short dipstick on the passenger side is the diff. You drain the diff at the back plug where it says diff, and you drain the trans on the front side of the tranny where the filter is. You fill them at their own dipstick holes...

    It's about 2/3 of the way up on the removable plate. I think it's a 14mm or 17mm. You can't actually drain through this plug, you need to remove the cover.
