Theres a bolt at the very bottom of the back cover of the diff, remove this and oil will drain out. it will drain out quicker when hot.
You can use any LSD diff oil in it, try a thicker one, eg: 85W140.
If the noise continues, then its rebuild time.

I've just realised, its a wagon? The cover is steel, still don't over tighten the filler plug.
