Use a box end wrench to loosen the 17 mm hex oil drain plug located at the back of the oil pan, facing the rear of the car. Only use the wrench for about a half turn.
Position an oil drain pan underneath the drain plug and loosen the drain plug by hand until it is free and oil begins to flow out of the oil pan.
Watch the draining oil for shiny specks. Metal flakes in your oil could indicate a serious problem inside your engine.
