tell me about it.
It is pain in the place where sun don't shine i.e. The eeco transmission oil filler plug is bigger pita. The transmission oil filler plug is blocked by the rear differential (remember the eeco is a RWD) drive shaft bolt.
The oil plug that maruti uses for alto and rest of the model range is a 10mm recessed square plug that requires a special 10mm square head tool to open up. In absence of which even a 3/8 drive head can also be used, you can get by with it in an alto because it is FWD and no irritating bolt blocks the way. So an extension bar for 3/8 square drive is also required. And guess what none of the tool shops normally carry such stuff.
Ordered on tolexo, something called the Jhalani expert oil change spanner, but the entire site is a fraud perpetrated on unassuming net users and the bakra who unwittingly buys anything from that fraud site.
So I already have a 3/8 drive and just need an extension bar, chalo dekhte hain.
