    2003 8l 1.6 Petrol Manual Gearbox Oil Filler Plug Removal Tool

    I need to change my gearbox oil.

    My Haynes manual shows the filler plug location. However, the fitting is much bigger than the drawing in the manual. It looks like it need a circa 35mm hex drain key / Allen key? Does anyone know where I can get one? I've tried amazon and eBay with no luck.

    And to make matters worse it looks like the clutch line is in the way too...

    That's not the drain plug dude, do not attempt to remove that plug!The drain, and refil plugs are both 17mm hex plugs. Drain is at the back of the box, underneath. Refill is on the end of the box, in the wheel arch direction.

    I think it supports some of the linkage inside the box! Lol
