Yes definitely. Using it 3/8 drive is only good if it starts to undo fairly easy. The 10mm drive is a better bet if the plug is being recalcitrant.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

The auto uses A/T fluid Dexron IIE

It takes about 1.1 litres but in practice, as there is no proper drain, you have to pump it out.

I favour using Millers oils whenever possible. Very helpful technical department.

I haven't had to do a box oil change on the auto yet, but I'm tempted to get someone else to do it as it's not straight forward.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny
