Transfer case drain plug

I can't find it. I don't think I have one. I see the fill plug but there is no drain plug. What am I missing here?

remove the damper plate (4 bolts with the round thing (damper) on it). The drain plug should be right behind it.

Yep thats where it is. Thanks. I feel stupid I didn't look under there. There is a little gap and you can clearly see the plug behind the damper before removing it.

what fluid do you put in your transfer case? I have never changed mine and I have a 132k miles. It probably needs to be done. The drain plug is the one in that looks like it will accept a 3/8 or 1/2 in drive socket right next to the ATF label right?

Thanks,
KC

Pull the fill plug first, or at least loosen it.


You would be mighty pissed if it stripped out on ya after you drained the case.
