Question rear dif oil change

2014 RLX Hybrid, Can't find conclusive information about the rear dif, what's the maintenance schedule?
the manual or maintenance schedule page don't mention anything about it. Does the car even have one or is it just independent electric motors? I see it listed as parts on some sites but I'm wondering if it's for the wrong car.

Yes it does, and it is called the "Twin Motor Unit".

Here is the maintenance schedule from the manual, but since you did not know what its called you might have missed it.

Make sure you read the *6 footnote:

When I go to Acura Maintenance Schedules | Acura Owners Site and select 2014 RLX hybrid/Tech there's no Maintenance minder Code 6

The dealer listed the same code, I just could not find it.
Also you must have a different manual, here's page 460 from the one I just downloaded from Acura, notice #6 is missing so I'm not that crazy

I apologize, I definitely am not insinuating that you are crazy.

When I said that you might have missed it, I was talking about the Twin Motor Unit reference #6.

I I have a 2016 SH, and I knew the manual included the footnote. When I checked the 2014 manual I saw it was missing, so I posted the one from the 2016.

I wanted too make sure you know what and when you need to service it......

No worries, thanks for the info. Guess they updated the manual after the first year model. I was checking online while my wife was at the dealership where all the advisers were scrambling to look under the car. That's after they figured out the car was already on and they don't need to jump it
