Some Questions after changing my fluids....

There is a separate magnet inside the tranny. You'd need to drop the pan to get at it. Mine just had a thin film on it, no real metal shavings.
The front diff bolt is like 21mm or 22mm. That plug is magnetic as well, and mine had some metal shavings on it. Especially since I didn't replace it for a LONG time.

I added 4qts of 80w90, which is not as much the 3qts (tops) that I drained. I can never find my manuals when I actually need them, but if my memory serves correct the manual diff capacity is 4.2qts. Unless a huge amount remains undrainable in the tranny the low <3 qts could very well explain some strange shifting behavior of my 1995 impreza, at cold startup temperatures. I will post this later on another thread perhaps.
So, leading to my question regarding the rear diffs....
Well, after doing the front, i was going to do the rear diff as well. From reading some USMB searched posts on this, I was under the impression a square 1/2 inch drive would fit right in and be able to remove the top and bottom drain plugs. But on inspection, I see that the drain plugs are regular hex nuts. Does anybody know what the size of these might be? (I think it's somewhere between 17 and 19mm), 18mm or 19mm?

Remove the fill plug first. If you remove the fill plug first and can't get the drain plug out no big deal, put it back together and take it to a shop. If you remove the drain plug first and can't get the fill plug out you can't fill it back up.

The correct answer to the size of the bolt: use a 17mm socket (for the rear diff on a manual transmission impreza).
I finally got around to doing this. The top bolt was a tight as a mofo, but I got it loose finally (after using a pipe around the short 3/8 in driver, and my hulk like powers).
