What's the best way to do this? REmove the skid plate and drain the fluid and the refill it from the rear of the t-case?

Thats one way.

If you want to make it easier on yourself try this. You wont have to remove the skid.

If you dont allready have one, pick up a fluid sucker from any auto parts place. Remove the threaded fill plug and use the fluid sucker to pull out as much as you can.

A large cookie sheet pan comes in handy for the next part. By now you should have most of the old fluid out. Keep a oil catch pan handy too. Lay the cookie pan on the skid and remove the threaded drain plug. If your carefull you can tip it so that the rest of the fluid will run down it into the oil catch pan.

After all the oil is out, clean the threads on the plugs and use a high end teflon tape and/or thread sealant. Install the drain one and fill the oil back up where it should be, install fill plug and your done.

That's the only way I saw how to do it, when I was under there changing trannie fluid last weekend. I haven't done the TC yet, but the method you describe is most likely how I'll do it.

See the black caps (they cover the drain holes) the one under the ID tag is the fill hole and the one to the far left is the drain hole. Take the fill plug out before you take the drain plug out. This will prevent the fluid from glug-glug-gluging..... Ya dig?
