COMBO - Diff Plug removal tool and Replacement Diff drain plug with 24mm Hex Head with Magnet
24mm Hex to 10mm Allen Hex Diff Plug Removal Tool
Servicing the front diff on a Hilux or Prado can be quite a task when the diff fill and drain plugs become hard to remove. If you are not careful, it is quite common to strip the weak 10mm Allen Hex socket in the Toyota diff plugs. Often, plugs need to be chiselled out when the 10mm hex strips due to tool twisting off axis due to the amount of force required to loosen the plugs.
This tool is designed help remove stubborn diff plugs and reduce the chance of stripping the 10mm hex. The tool is an adapter which allows you to use a 24mm socket or ring spanner to remove the plug. One side of the tool has a 24mm hex and the other side has a slightly oversize 10mm hex which is designed to fit snuggly into the Toyota hex plug. A large flat flange helps keep the tool square and on axis when applying the torque to remove the plug.
The tool is made from hardened and tempered tool steel and has been tested to withstand the large torque required to remove the most stubborn plugs.
Save yourself the headache and wasted time of a stripped plug.
