Nope. That is a pesky devil back there. Don't try to half-ass it with expansion plugs or anything of the sort. You have to replace it. Ask me how I know this....

Remove the shafts. Drop the skid plate and let the motor/tranny hang down in the rear. It should droop just far enough to snake up in there and replace the plug.

Works much better if you have a shop lift.
