Also, a 6 point socket works WAY better than a 12 point. I got my 15/16" (same as 24mm) at Sears.
if it aint there, there's a good chance it won't break!

@ Abra-Cadaver: Always check out the Tool Talk Forum!

Info on modified sockets/box end for transmission drain/fill.

Totally OT, but I am curious - from whence springs the second half of your nom de Club?

i have the front axle leak problem on my daily driver (right side)
i am on the fourth seal over a few years
the last one seems to be holding but have not checked for a few months so who knows.
Love those Tercell 4x4 wagons but they sure suffer from road noise.

FWD and 4WD axles all same- M/T and A/t axles- all same (as are all gen 2 tercel sedans- just one of the many things I love about these cars.) 'course they're different left and right. As for the 24mm sockets, 6 point non-impact works best (thinner wall thickness.)
