    Is there an easy way to get this thing out? Why didn't they just put one in the cover like on the front. Thanks.

    All I ever use is a 3/8 extension and a ratchet. The square end of the extension fits in the square hole perfect.

    Yep, that's what I allways use. You may be eble to get out with just a 3/8" ratchet with no extension.

    If yours is stripped like mine was, get a bolt and have a muffler shop weld it on to the plug. Mine was probably a 7/16 bolt, the head is 9/16. Now you can use a 9/16 socket to get it off, which is a lot easier.

    I was able to get it out with just a 3/8" ratchet. My 10 bolt even looks to be in pretty good shape /forums/images/icons/cool.gif. You can see the wear on the ring gear, but its not much, and there was nothing in the bottom of the housing.
