T3 front diff oil capacity?

Just realized I initially posted this query in the wrong forum. Apologies to the moderators for double posting.
On my current 2014 Touareg just drained the front differential and refilled with correct VW gear oil.
I filled until it started to run out the fill hole, used almost an entire quart.
Now it is making an odd sound under acceleration, sort of like gear rumble or a very low pitched bearing howl. Until this drain and refill the front diff has not made a sound that was abnormal. The last Ď14 I had had a differential bearing go so Iím familiar with the sound it made. This is not the same.
Wondering if I over filled it. Couldnít find a definitive spec on capacity.
Thanks for info that anyone can share.
