Well, I did my first drain today.

You need:

17mm socket/wrench.
4L of Subaru Trans fluid
I drained 3.5L
A long narrow spout funnel.

I did not jack the car up. The drain plug is easy to reach.
The plug is not a magnet. I will replace with a magnet version before next drain and fill.

Once I put in 3.3L I ran the car until warm and measured. Hit full on my first attempt.

Easy job. Very easy.

I torqued the plug to 18 lb ft.
