Hallo All.
As a newbie to 4X4s I have recently bought a 2001 Jimny auto (convertible with hardtop) and will shortly be changing all the fluids.
The drain / fill plugs seem to have a square recess to undo.

Probably a daft question but can anybody tell me if they all the same, what size this is and whether there is a recommended tool to remove them without damaging them.

Thanks in advance
John

The sump fill/drain plugs can be VERY tight, i have this in my tool box and it fits three of my cars and my van.

Thanks. Yep, I used to have something similar. Unfortunately I was daft enough to lend it to a mechanic thinking he'll give it back later... Never happened. And it was so bloody pricy considering what it is! Hence the bolt replacement.B)
