You remove your magnetic drain plug and it looks like this! Good thing I have the helical on had for swap. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Heh...

I changed the tranny oil about a week after I bought my car, and the drain plug looked quite similar to that.

That's not too bad, we pulled the plug out of my friend's honda automatic trans and watched as the shavings plip-plopped into the pan one after the other. Only thing I'd be worried about is if that crap is from the bearings...

I wish I had some pics of my uncle's diff from his Toyota pickup... Missing like 3 teeth on the pinion gear.
