Changing fluids

Hey Guys,
Can I take off the skid plate under the tranny to change the oil without having to support the tranny? I can't get to the drain plug with it on.

You will need to support the trans/t-case if you remove the belly pan. Is the plug really inaccessible, I don't know about standards, but I know I can get the pan off my auto without dropping the skid...

Just put a floor jack under the transfer case and you'll be fine.

I have the AX-5 and the drain plug is in a very convenient place.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

Yea, I even took it to my local oil change place and they couldn't do it either. I would call that an engineering snafu!

Got it done. You can get to the drain plug with the pan on but the oil will just run into the pan, no hole to go through. You can't get to the fill hole with the pan on however and it isn't easy with it off. Here is bit of info for anyone doing this. The fill and drain plugs on the B10/5 tranny take a 5/16 male pipe plug socket to get them out. Bloody engineers!

Thanks all
