I am going to change the oil for the first time on our 2006 V6 SRX and want to make sure I know where the Oil drain plug is located. Is it the plug that I think faces the passenger side of the vehicle and is near the front of the vehicle? Also, what size wrench is needed? I have always changed the oil on our other vehicles but just want to make sure that I get the right drain plug (I am a little embarassed to asked). Thanks
I did it recently and it was noticeable. it looks like a typical oil plug. no idea on the size. I also like the positioning of the oil filter, it was easy to replace.
Faces drivers side, just to drivers side of centerline, approximately 2.5 ft back front of vehicle. 13MM like most drain plugs now.
