Differential fluid change on a '99 auto?

Has anyone ever changed the differential fluid in a '98-'01 auto? On my '93 there is a seperate differential drain plug (other than the tranny plug), and my Haynes manual says there is one for the '99, but it's nowhere to be found. Thanks

Never changed it.
Why are you changing it?
My 92 Lincoln manual says never check or change the diff fluid. Only time to replace is if repairs were made, otherwise just leave it alone as it came from the factory. Check your manual, it MAY say the same thing. Just trying to save you some work.

Differential failure will very quickly lead to transmission failure...just trying to maintain my drivetrain.

OK good luck.
Oh and that's why I hate Haynes - they're way too generic for any real work.

In the Toyota Service Manual for the 1998, it shows no separate drain and fill for the manual transmission.

For the A131L automatic transmission the manual shows a drain plug and a fill plug. I don't have access to a 1998 Corolla, but the diagram seems to be from the viewpoint of someone under the car and looking at the back of the differential. There is a circular motor mount and to the left of it a rectangular object (another mount?). The fill plug is slightly behind the rectangular object, but roughly between the rectangular object and the circular motor mount as you look at this view. Its head faces the back of the car. The drain plug would be on the bottom of the left bottom corner of the transmission in this view. Its head faces the ground.

No separate diagram of this is given for the A245E automatic transmission.
