      Angle/Bevel Gear Oil Bolt Location?

      Tried to change the Angle/Bevel Gear Oil but couldn't find the fill bolt.
      The bevel box appears to be different to what I've seen here:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YFDpDk7gAw
      And in Vida Diagrams and photos.

      The car is a XC90 2013 reg (2014 in VIDA) D5 AWD RHD.
      The differential and gearbox look the same as other cars.

      Does anyone know where I can find the drain/fill bolt?

      Photo of the bevel box here:

      Thanks in advance from the UK!

      Looking at where the pass. axle comes out of the angle gear, right next to the output you will see a bolt, I wanna say it's a 13 or 14mm. You use that as both the drain and fill plug.

      You can just see it poking out in the third and 2nd to last photo (if my orientation is correct).
      You'll see a bolt pattern that's symmetrical and then one bolt that's tucked inside that pattern.
      It's a 13mm tucked in the little alcove here:

      @generic_volvo_driver Your photo didn't load.

      Did you guys mean this bolt:

      If so could you please confirm to get the level right I need to fill it until starts dripping slowly out then remove 100ml of fluid with a syringe?

      Thanks all!

      Yes, that bolt.
      I forget if there's a newer TJ that changed the amount. Search around to confirm it still is 100mL.

      I'll be posting some interesting research I've been doing on the fluid removal in the coming days.
      On a family member's 2015 XC60 T6 I serviced this weekend, it did not have the requirement to remove any fluid from the angle gear, the rear diff or the Gen5 Haldex vs my 2012 XC60 T6 AWD or my 2013 XC90 AWD. I'm going to be comparing part numbers and design notes to see if there was an actual design change to warrant the lack of fluid removal or if fluid removal is for CAFE ratings.

      Thanks for the info, but I cannot find anywhere that confirms the fluid amount for this shape of design.
      where is the best place to look?
