3. Clean the area around the fill plug in the right front wheel well.
4. Using an 8mm Allen socket, remove the front gearcase fill plug and set aside. Tip: A long ball Allen with a 6-inch extension will aid in fill plug access.
5. Clean the area around the drain plug.
6. Remove the drain plug with an 8mm Allen socket and allow the fluid to drain completely.
