asking because i have a model y long range on order a year out. couldn't find much info at the moment but i've seen that there's the typical drain plug and not so typical fill plug. when you pull the fill plug the oil comes out. you also need to pull the cv axle out in order to put a specified amount of fluid through the cv axle hole. sounds bizarre to me. can you just plug the drain hole, jack up one side to increase fluid capacity, that way you avoid having to pull the cv axle? if you fill up the fill hole it is technically underfilled. plus there's 2 spin on transmission fluid filters. the elements possibly can't be lifetime right? it will tear at one point? anyone do a teardown on the filter?
