Front Differential Drain Plug
Welcome to my nightmare.
I started doing a simple oil change when I realized I pulled the wrong drain plug because I had to guess as my dealer did not include an owner's manual with my used Forester and I was in too big a hurry to be smart and download one.
So, I got some ATF and filled it in what I now suspect is the Front Differential Gear Oil (passenger side behind engine) rather than the ATF (which appears to be on the driver's side).
So, I now need to drain the Front Differential Gear Oil and replace it and I want to be darn sure I have the correct drain plug this time. Can someone please tell me where this plug is so I'm sure I don't make this an even bigger job than it's already become?!
