Always wear protective gloves and eyewear when working with motor oil. Be careful if your car has been running recently as the engine and transmission may be very hot. Keep rags or towels nearby to wipe up any spills.

Use a 19 mm box end wrench or socket wrench to loosen the oil drain plug.

After a few full turns with the wrench, use your fingers to loosen the oil drain plug.

When the drain plug is completely loose, let it fall into the oil drain pan with the draining oil.
