Help with Socket size

I'm going to change the Tranny oil today and have found that I don't have the right size socket for the drain plug. I drove my other rig into work today so I can't go out and look at it. I was hoping to pick one up on the way home.

Anyone what size it is??

2005 X 6cyl 6 speed manual... I think it's the NV3550?

If ya buy a small set like 15 bucks at the depot- get standard size it will be there. I believe it is 7/16th's socket. In metric that would be like a 11mm i believe.

Thanks guys. I did just that to make sure I have the right one. I'm going to try and get it done today. By the way...I was told that the plug is a 17mm allen head.

Thats it !?!?!? Man, when I did my first lube change on my 98XJ's AX15 it took the biggest open/box I had in my tool box... 1" or a tad larger. I ended up buying some larger ones and now I have to grab 4 and see which one fits now.

Yeah, it sucks getting old. Luckily, Sears has the laser etching on the sockets now,,, there's hope!
