Yup you can see it in my invoice, few pages back. In the middle £430 quid for something that costs ~£130:

How can you overfill a diff by several litres? Wouldn't the excess oil just pour out of the fill hole before you can plug it back?

It's not like an engine, where in theory you can fill it right to the top/filler cap level.

Bit of an aside, but years ago when I worked for the local Austin/Rover dealership we had a Mini Moke brought in with a "seized engine" - turned out the owner was a teenage lad, and his dad had told him to make sure he topped up the engine oil - which he did - right to the top of the rocker cover. Caused a lot of laughs in the workshop... ;-)

I can't remember what it was called but an ex gf of mine got a brand new 4-stroke 125cc honda copy . Must have been 2 years later i caught her topping up the oil with water :scared-eek:

There was some oil in the water when i emptied it but not much , says something about honda quality though that even a half the price copy never missed a beat !

The chap who emptied it made a point of this also. It is a mystery. As the axle was replaced it is possible it was filled at a different orientation before being fitted? Either way it has the correct amount now.
I was wondering that - it was the only explanation.
