Default Rear diff oil change

i have a couple quick questions..i have searched and i cant find anything relevant..so help would be appreciated. my questions are..when changing the rear diff. oil in the STi i noticed theres a sensor..is there any certain way to get it out, or not to get it out..?? after being taken out, once its put back in is there a need to reset anything? and how much quarts does the STi diff. take? how much does the tranny take?? and finally when jacking the rear of the car up, do i need to jack the front up or can the front wheels rest on the ground? thank you for the help! jared

I making assumptions here so bear with me...

Put the car on a lift or jackstands for best oil flow.
Remove the fill (top) bolt using a 1/2" breaker bar to remove.
It will probably be on there gorilla tight, so prepare for battle.
Once out, remove the drain (lower) bolt.
Once empty, reinstall the drain (lower) bolt.
Fill the top hole with gear oil until it spills out. ~.8qt is for WRX & should be the same for you, but double check me.
Reinstall fill bolt.

the key is to remove the top (fill) plug 1st because wouldn't it suck if you got the bottom off and couldn't fill it

Step 1: Take it to Jiffy Lube
Step 2: Watch their shotty TV while "Jon" takes care of it

But seriously, probably do what the other guys said. I just got tired of doing anything oil-related a long time ago.

If you're ever in doubt about this, just disconnect the battery before beginning work on the car. If the ECU isn't getting any power, it'll never know that the sensor was removed and replaced... of course, the ECU will be reset in the process, too.
