How to pull the diff fill plug 560SEL
Tried to pull the fill plug on the differential today to change the gear oil. What I found was the self leveling valve (or related equipment) was in the way. My 14mm allen socket is about 2 inches long, and while I can get the allen in the plug I cannot get a ratchet or breaker on the socket.
I tried putting a 14mm box on the allen before placing the allen in the plug, but couldn't get enough leverage to move the plug. How do those of you with self leveling get your fill plug out?
