If I recall correctly, we charged around ~2.5 hours or so, had to pull off the wheel, hub assembly out of the way, pull out the axle and replace the seal, that might be high though I worked at a dealership...

ask around

It won't lock up, it'd take a LONG time to lose all that fluid, the differential holds a lot more than the housing...
