    Thats it, with the square hole in it. 3/8ths ratchet will plug right into it.

    Yup, get a funnel and a section of hose. Fill til it starts leaking back out of the hole and cap it off. fluid level should be exactly even with the bottom of the fill hole.

    stick the racthet on there and bang it with a hammer...it'll come loose lol oh and when you tighten it back, don't put it back that tight, it just needs to be snug like your oil drain plug.

    If you must go the "unsafe" route- throw a long piece of skinny pipe on your ratchet and give it hell. It'll get much easier after you've done it one time. At least yours is only the standard 3/8" plug- mine on the diff are 23mm and 24mm. Talk about a huge plug and needing a lot of torque to break them loose.

    You take the fill bolt out first just in case you can't get it loose- it sucks to drain the transmission and then not be able to fill it back up again. ;)
