Hey up.
2013 model.
Just dropped the front diff oil. Last done 2yrs ago.
See on pics a little sludge on plug and a few what look like metallic shavings. Only thin but like paint flakes.
The sludge/debris not as black as in the pics, more silver/greyish. The oil itself looked nice and clean and brownish.
Any hows, does all look ok or is there anything I should be concerned about ?
TIA

Nah, thats pretty standard.

The last oil change would have flushed remaining debris from the axle casing, this is what you are seeing :-)
