Hi guys

I had hard time to locate the drain/fill plug of front differential. Anybody can share a picture? and it's on driver side or passenger side?

I can't watch it now, but the video description says "The differential is located between the transmission and the front of the driveshaft that goes to the rear wheels." which seems not applicable to my car, or it's more like for the rear differential.

here is a screen shot of service manual. I just could not locate that sealing plug.
