Question Size for Tranny drain plug and diff plug?

Does anyone happen to know what socket I need to get these plugs out to replace tranny fluid and diff's fluid? I'm not sure where to get the socket for the rear diff drain plug....thanks a lot.

use a 1/2 inch rachet with no socket on it. it is square and should fit right in there.. on MY06+ the tranny is a torx socket so im not too sure about yours. i believe it is a 22mm , but dont quote me, do a quick search.

Be careful with using the 1/2" rachet, not all are created equal. Mine had rounded edges and I stripped the plug somewhat.
I had another ratchet that had better "squared off" edges, and worked much better.

2004 also uses the torx as well, I bought mine off ebay for less than $20 shipped.

Question Color of Redline shock proof 75W90, and sizes

1. Does anyone know the color of Redline shockproof 75w90? I have it in my tranny and haven't checked. I looked at it today, and it looks like blueish-green color...i thought it was red.

2. I got 04 WRX. The rear diff nut isn't 1/2 inch rachet thing...can't use it. Also, I thought I could inspect the rear diff fluid, but don't see a place I can look through to see the oil level.

3. The drain plug for the tranny isn't the t-70 torx. Only a socket can be used...and it looks like 13/16 inch socket. isn't that 21mm?

4. A mechanic told me the tranny fluid doesn't need to be replaced (not for manual tranny)....really?

Thanks, Irocznissan.

haha....i feel better knowing it should be replaced now. yeah I was a little nervous seeing blue when I thought it was red. I put in Royal Purple and so far I like it. Shifting is a little less smooth....so I double clutch to make it smooth....no problem so far.

I got the tranny nut....it's 13/16.

for the rear diff, there are two plugs - the upper one is the fill hole - to check the oil level, remove the plug and stick your finger in there - you are checking to make sure the oil level is even with the bottom of the hole. Removing the plugs (fill and drain) should be a 1/2" drive socket wrench or breaker bar... remove the fill plug first (because if you can't get it out, you don't want to be draining the differential), then the drain plug.
