The maintenance guide for "Oil Change" leads to a thread titled: "Bumper Removal, Headlight Removal, and HID Kit Installation"

Also: The service bulletin for the ole "spider-in-the-fuel-vent" issue needs to be added.

- Transfer gear box (AWD): API 80w-90 GL5 hypoid gear oil; 0.9L (0.95 qts)
- Rear differential (AWD): API 80w-90 GL5 hypoid gear oil; 0.9L (0.95 qts)

I want to use synthetic gear oil for transfer gear box and rear differential.
But I could not find synthetic 80w-90.
Can I use synthetic gear oil 75w-90 instead? Any input?

You should be fine with 75w90, as long as it's GL5. Other members have reported that dealerships used Mobil 1 75w90
