    I haven't had to check mine yet, so I can't comment on the complexity, but here is a diagram of the fill plug:

    It is in the middle left in the image,(looks like passenger side?) with a line pointing to it, and a number "1".

    Hope this helps.

    Not sure, but I believe this view is from the passenger side.

    Don't use stop leak. If it's leaking it probably needs a new seal.

    I haven't done it on a Catera but every other diff is essentially the same. You take out the fill plug and add the specified gear oil until it starts to run out the hole. Keep the car level while filling. Usually you can just squeeze the bottle to put the oil in, but sometimes you need a pump - depending on ease of access to the fill hole.
