Thanks for sharing the NT530 register steps. It was indeed not so trivial to find the option.

You can also do this and make your own tool. That tool becomes 60 dollars if I order it and shipped to Canada. Crazy shipping price. I ended up taking the mount as well. It was time consuming but I got it done.

Just realized, since this is a diff fluid change thread, we should have made these posts in the "DIY: Let's change our transfer case fluid" thread.

I performed this yesterday and the ISTA+ guide by Pungo above was perfect! It reset the calibration back to 0.0 and told me what it was like (10 something).
