    Manual Trans Special Drain Plug Tool

    My transmission is leaking & was only noticed after the plastic panel was removed for an oil change.
    I haven't had time to find the leak yet but I need to check & fill the oil to the correct level.
    Some time ago I purchased the special tool probably 2 years ago & now when I need it I can't find it.
    A search shows many suppliers overseas but I cant wait for the expected delay in delivery.
    The closest so far is a 20 piece set from Bursons but I don't need any more of the other sizes.
    Does any one know of a local supplier that will sell the one tool?
    The VW special tool no is 3357 & is a 16mm XZN or Triple square or Multispline

    Go to a proper tool shop. Something like TotalTools, Sydney Tools, TradeTools. They should sell singles for use on your ratchet.
    I've bought 8,12,14mm over the years.
    I've found that they don't list every item on the website.
    Called XZN, TripleSquare or Spline bit
    MK4 GTI - Sold
    MK5 Jetta Turbo - Sold
    MK5 Jetta 2.Slow - Until it dies.

    Thanks for your response. I hadn't tried the normal tool shops as I considered them mainly supplying to the building industry.
    I have tried the names you have provided & had no luck. I will keep trying though.

    I found one this morning @ SA Alltools in Pooraka for $24. For any SA members, the range of stuff they stock in special tools is
    enormous, a real secret place in Adelaide.
