Does anyone know what size is the AT drain plug on 2003 OBW 4cyl? Any special tools needed? Do you need to drop the pan in order to change the AT filter?

Thanks.

That's why there is a drain plug, so you don't have to EFF with the pan.

Our legacies take 17mm socket for drain plug, for both 2.2 (1999)or 2.5 (2003) engine. Trans filter is external and spin on. I suspect your is the same.

Thanks for the reply. Since I have mostly sockets and have been told that some AT drain plugs are not the conventional type but stars or hex heads, I was concerned about having the right tool for the job, plus I do not seem to have very good luck with hex or star heads and usually end up stripping them.

I'm glad to know that the AT filter is external and does not require me to drop the pan. I have dropped a few pans before and it is always not a pleasant job.

Thank you.
