    Hi Folks,

    I have a 1999 Tacoma SR5 3.4 L V6. I am wanting to change out the transfer case fluid. Can anyone tell me what size Wrench I need to remove the drain and fill plugs? My 22mm was just a little small so I am suspecting I need a 24mm. :cool:

    Thanks!!

    Thanks Beerhat!!

    Would the wrench size be the same for the transmission fluid plugs?

    Thanks from a novice

    Was a PreRunner, now it isn't
    a good sized crescent wrench will work

    Also, make sure you take off the fill plug first! That way you dont drain the oil, realize you cant open up the fill plug, and leave your truck stuck at home.
