Can anyone with a service manual/knowledge on the subject post what size hex nut is to be used to open the front differential drain and fill plugs on a 2004 V6 AWD SRX?

Are there torque specs listed for each?

Thanks,
ACE

Drain and fill plugs torque spec = 29 lb-ft
Can't help with hex size.

Answered my own question by buying multiples and returning the unused.

FYI, for the front differential, both the fill and drain plugs take a 10mm hex. I found that the 3/8" socket attachment works best. To flush/add fluid is relatively easy and is a job the basic car enthusiast could perform.
