    So I decided to swap out all the gear oil in my 03 Taco (3.4L). Didn’t go so well. I don’t think anyone’s ever cracked these plugs open... that or they over tightened them (majorly). Anyways, I did some damage to a few of the plugs while removing them and I’d like to get to proper part #s to replace them:
    Transmission (manual)
    Transfer Case
    Front diff
    Rear diff

    Thank you for the help!

    These are plugs.......holding non-pressure fluid. Use new gaskets, then tighten to a firm snug, like the oil pan drain plug. They don't need a gorilla torque.

    If you damaged the plugs, then you should replace them. They're not expensive. A damaged and over tightened plug will be a major PITA at the next service.

    Yeah, I know. I just finished cracking the last of em open. The prior owner either never serviced them or put threadlocker on. I just need the part #s now... the microfiches are really hard to read.

    Get a Lexus plug for the front diff so you don't have to use allen keys. 90341-24016 on Lexuspartsnow.com
    Also you should replace the crush washers each time.

    Sorry I don't have the part numbers handy.
