Rear Diff oil change question

Hello I have a 2004 Rhino 660 that I am attempting to change the diff gear oil in and Ive read several posts from several forums and only one mentions that there is a viewing window to fill to in the rear end but for the life of me I cannot find it.

Diff Fluid Change? - Yamaha Grizzly ATV Forum

It states not to fill to the fill hole as it can blow the seals. Can anyone point me to where to find this viewing window?

Thanks ~ Phil

A standard one litre bottle of gear oil did both of my diffs, and still had a bit left over.

I always fill mine and then let it sit for a bit. I usually have to top it off 2 times before its actually full..it always keeps settling down.
