    Question Weird Transmission Oil Drain Plug

    Hi, I wanted to change my tranny fluid when to my surprise I saw that the drain plug has some sort of 6 pointed star shaped head. I can't use a regular socket wrench to remove it. I went to a parts dealer and they had no tool to match it. Does anyone know where I can get the tool to remove the drain plug?

    My car is a 2004 WRX wagon.

    Thanks in advance!

    It takes a TORX T70 socket. You can get one here for $22 http://www.toolsource.com/ost1/Resul...=t70&Submit=Go

    Or, a Subaru dealership will be able to order one for you and IIRC, they are $14.
