Differential fluid change question

i have a 2014 CRV and I want to change the rear differential fluid. My guess is the correct way to get under it is to raise the vechile up on four jack stands. For some reason getting under this makes me very nervous. I'd rather just use a pair of ramps which I use for oil changes. However will the angle of the vechile be thrown off and adverse effect the amount of fluid the differential would take, or are I worrying unecessarily?

You know this is a Civic forum, right?


There may be enough clearance to just slide your body under it.
Fill hole is near the front of the diff, so if the rear of the car is raised it may end up a bit low.

Simple drain and fill, approximately 1.6 US quarts IIRC
Use HONDA DUAL PUMP FLUID II ONLY

It's ok....I spent almost 10 years in a Mazda dealer long ago. I've been with a Honda dealer for almost 15 years and I still try to call these cars things like 323 and 626 LOL
