Manual Transmission Drain Plug Tool

I do not have the tools to fabricate one myself. Can you purchase one through MOPAR or anywhere else?

I believe you can purchase the correct size hex wrenches or a hex bit for a socket at a hardware store and then cut it down to size. If you don't have a hack saw, sawzall, or cutoff wheel, the cheapest one to buy is a hack saw and that would work to cut them down

You can make them with 4 bucks in hardware. You need 14 and 17mm metric bolts and 2 nuts for each of them. Put the nuts on back-to-back so you have something to crank against with a wrench.

The exhaust clearance for the drain is the main issue, make sure the bolt you get isn't so long it hits on the pipe. Bolt length doesn't matter much for the fill hole. These are cranked in pretty tight from the factory, make sure you can get the fill plug out before draining.
