    Just wondering, but do you still have to disconnect the battery if you've got a syringe for filling, or is the fill plug on the top part and inaccessible from underneath? It's a little difficult to tell.

    Cheers. So it's not a hex head bolt but a square drive type? Will the 3/8" socket also fit the fill bolt? I'm thinking I could loosen then use my extendable inspection torch which is magnetised to pull it up.

    Or possible something like this once it's been loosened:

    I tried to remove that filler bolt and the square 'drive piece' twisted where the ball bearing is. :Frown:
    You may need a solid square drive, unless your bolt isn't as tight as mine.

    I was thinking of using a solid extension bar for the initial loosening and then using the one above to finish it off. But was also thinking won't the small ball bearings in the square drive part not grip the bolt just as it would grip a socket?

    IIRC, there is a very shallow head on the bolt. Either that or my square drive didn't go down far enough. :Frown:

    MTF TOP BOLT.

    I've decided not to get that tool and I'm trying to source something similar to what HH use. Proving to be difficult to find online but I've got in touch with our tool man who comes in with his mobile Aladdin's cave.

    It seems that any extension that has a magnetic tip is a flexible type so that's no good, I even looked at a solid extension bar and putting a 1mm thin N45 magnet on it but they are 10mm in diameter and a 3/8 drive is about 9mm so that's no good.

    Finally! :BooYeah:

    Have to thank a guy from the MPS forum for pointing me in the right direction and eventually managed to find the right kind which was a bit of a struggle (the rest are all ball bearing type). £25 but hopefully will be money well spent.

    Here it is, not quite what I thought it would be - I thought the metal bits moved and I probably wouldn't use this to try and loosen the bolt as it would put a fair bit of pressure on the black plastic lockable part of it due to the small amount of play there is between the 3/8 being 9.5mm and the square drive being 10mm (I believe).

    So I think I'd use this: Laser Drain Plug Key Set 14 Pieces | Servicing Tools | Screwfix.com to loosen then use the lockable extension to extract.

    Lockable%20Extension.

    So that's £50 spent so far but then I can do both the MTF and rear diff and what with my shorter journeys I'll probably be doing them both more frequently so hopefully a decent investment compared to paying labour costs.

    These guys are on my doorstep back home, infact I drove by them an hour ago. The factory shop in there has some right bargains.

    I picked up the Laser plug keys yesterday but noticed that there is no 10mm square plug, it jumps from 9mm to 11mm but there's also a 3/8 square plug. But I've looked at other makes and there's others than don't have a 10mm but do state that they are for Hondas so hopefully the play I noticed when using the 3/8 extension bar is 2mm and not just 1mm lol
