GJ!

I couldnt locate a 6 point socket. I had to settle for a 12-point also. But I dont remember the size. Cant remember if it was metric or not. Anyways, luckily, mine wasnt an issue coming out.

For future use:
The hammer on the head of plug works great..few lil taps..then use a block and a mallet and tap your socket on(I use a 24mm 12 point Stanley from Walmart), then use a breaker while laying on the ground and pulling towards you(just don't pop yourself in the face)

Tapping the socket on with a block and a mallet makes it sit flush on the plug and not angled, when it's angled is how you slip and strip.

It works everytime.

Had the same problem with a transfer case filler nut.First time I cranked on it the socket slipped off,rounding the nut.Those nuts are very shallow,hard to grab onto.Noticed the inside of the socket is countersunk somewhat.Ground the front edge down,works mo betta.
