Some diferentials do not have drain plugs and you must remove the cover. Some are on the bottom. I have both kinds, the upside on having to remove the cover is that you can inspect the condition.

Mine doesn't have a cover... it's a split case... and when you say "cover" are you talkin' about a cover like what's on the rear??

Rich the drain plug is on the left side below the left front axle, should be a 13mm hex head with a plastic gasket. the fill plug is on the right side of the case half about half way up in front of the right axle extension housing and should be a 15mm hex head with a plastic gasket. It takes 80W90 gear oil and 2 quarts will be more than enough.
