If you run into a stripped front differential fill tube drain plug when changing the gear oil on a generation 1 CVT unit (2010-2012 Legacy and Outback), there is a countermeasure drain plug available.

The original drain plug (P/N 807016180) should be replaced with P/N 807015160 drain plug. This new type plug is 1.0 mm longer. DO NOT use P/N 807016210, which is too long and will damage the CVT transmission.

Note that all remanufactured CVT transmissions will already have the longer type drain plug installed.

Use the new drain plug 807016180 only, which features an 8.5mm length, which is 1.0mm longer than the original. DO NOT use the 807016210 plug, which is 17.0mm long and will damage the CVT.
