you have to get a pump to siphon it into the diff. Wal Mart and any local parts shop will have one. They run for ~$10.

It is on the passenger's side of the differential, and takes a 3/8" ratchet to remove/install.

I just got a 4" peice of tube or so and squeezed the bottle till it was full. Or you can use the pump method.

I use the tube method into the pass side hole until it dribbles out. Then stop, cap it off, and wipe everything clean. Gotta love that diff fluid stench! Ha ha.
