if you have the smaller oil bottles with the little hose on top you can get the bottle in there upside down and squeeze the oil into the diff but if the hose pops out, oil goes all over you..

so i normally use the same method as the gear box, except the hose runs up through the wheel arch keeping funnel and hose is well above the diff..

I have one of those oil pumps, its pretty old and I havent seen one like it for a while now, its pretty much all metal and rubber hose instead of the plastic crap in supercheap.
It screws onto your bottle, has a bit of pipe with a metal tip bent at 90 degrees to hook into your box/diff. ebay doesnt even have anything remotely like it lol, absolute magic bit of gear.
