Alright once you've located the drain plug for your transaxle case, you can take on this particular vehicle an Allen wrench and remove it. About, I would guess it's sixty to seventy percent of the vehicles out there will have a drain plug on the transaxle. You'll notice that vehicles that have a drain plug on the transaxle themselves have a very small transmission oil pan. You remove the plug and allow the fluid to drain out real slowly into our pan. We're going to let it drain until it's almost entirely out, it will sit there and drip for an extremely long amount of time. So once we have it down to the point where it's just dripping, we'll go ahead and reinstall the drain plug. Alright as you can see we've got the vast majority of the fluid out of the transaxle case, it's just dripping there. I'm going to take and reinstall the case drain plug, it's your typical lefty loosey kind of plug. Screw it down clockwise, and tighten it up with my Allen wrench. Be sure not to over torque it, you're screwing a steel plug into a aluminum threaded case and you can damage it that way. And right there. That is the proper way to drain your transaxle case.
