Mine was slightly stripped as well. Try an Allen wrench. I found one that was on a socket which allowed me to get enough torque to get it out

First it was sligthly stripped, tried with allen wrench on socket, tools just bent,,,
Then i hammered a torx bit on socket to fit in there, gave it all my force, but just stripped head more, plug still stuck.
Now head is completly stripped

I would try the weld on nut before drilling. You don't want a bunch of shavings in your tcase.

----------------------------------------

OEM

"Transfer case oil fill plug w/gasket"

P/N: 68001627AA MSRP $2.45

----------------------------------------

The specific size of the plug is 14MM-1.5

*below is if you do not want the OEM torx head*

Hex size

13mm

Length under head

3cm

*just in case it is easiest to purchase one from a local supply store, if a dealership is not available.

That plug is a perfect candidate for welding a hex nut to the plug. I do not think the case is cracked at all. Those look like casting marks that happens to aluminum a lot. You will find marks like that on your transmission case as well. BTW, I would not recommend hammering on cast aluminum to force a torx into a hex, or a hex into a torx. You are truly lucky you didn't knock a clean hole right where the plug is located. IMO.

I'm not 100% sure it's cracked. Might be okay with it. If you can't weld a nut on there you can drill the plug out. It might be easier to remove the transfer case from the vehicle. If you remove it and you're still worried you can just replace the back half of your transfer case, you don't have to replace the whole thing. Good luck.

Side note, this is why I always say to remove the fill plug first. It would really suck to drain the transfer case and then strip out the fill plug. Then you'd be stuck with slowly filling it through a tube or taking the transfer case out and bench filling it.
