Just hit the plug with a hammer a few times fairly hard and it will loosen up it may take a few hits just try undoing it after every 4 hits. Hit it hard but be sensible because the box is alloy

Why ya changing the oil.. do you like smooth gear changes and no noise?

haha :)

I'll remember to check if i can get my fill plug out b4 i attempt to drain it now that i've read this!

I'll probably rip the box out and do it.. since i really need a new clutch.. but thats after the rear brakes get replaced.. metal to metal aint pretty sounding!
