How To Remove Tranny drain plug?
I tried to remove the drain plugs on my 4kq tranny the other day and
almost stripped the forward one because it is on so tight. I was using a
cheater bar on the allen wrench to get it off. Could not keep allen in
tight enough to get it off though. It is on REALLY TIGHT.
I know this is a common problem. How do you fix it.
FYI, I got the rear out by using the VW tool on the lower drain plug and
wedging a 2x4 piece of wood between it and the sub-frame, then hammered a
flat blade screwdriver up there to keep it tight and used my feet to press
as hard as I could. It worked. It didn't slip out and the bolt came
loose. Sucker was in tight. Cant get the tranny one though. Fear I may
not be able to.
Where can you order the plugs with the magnets to catch the metal
shavings and do all Audi trannys have these.
