Re: ATF drain plug
I couldn't locate the ATF drain plug while looking at the bottom engine compartment from the front of the 2012 RL... is it different from the 2008? I don't see any blue plug!
Trying to locate things to see if it is possible to do most fluids without lifting RL... but clearance is worst in the front: only 10" (ground to front central jack point) whereas sides are 12.5".
I was able to locate the Engine oil plug, the oil filter, the ATF fill plug ; the transfer case plug (is it for both draining and refill with Hypoid?).
Now for the ATF plug: in what area is it located? by the Hypoid (transfer case)?: because I see there a fairly large plug, without any marking or coloring like the Engine Oil or Hypoid ... is it facing the passenger side or driver side? the front or the back of the RL?
Any tip is appreciated... thanks.
