Then you can have car back on the level, and fill from top without anything more than a trans funnel, the kind with a flex tube. Plus you can still put plug back in from top as well. Oh, and I only put in 2 qts since that's what the manual calls for. It has to be so very close if you guys say 2.1 so I'm not buying another $20 qt just to have 0.9 of it sit around for another 2-3 years. Just my 0.02 Thanks again

Aussie En I have been trying to find the filler plug for my 2009 Focus. The transmission seems different to the one shown in the pictures. Can anyone tell me where the filler plug should be on mine please. I'm hoping that someone can help me even though I am in Australia and my Focus may be a little different. (The pics and information on this thread is great by the way).

dino3721 I had a problem getting to the drain plug on my 2002 Focus Wagon. I did not want to remove the rear engine mount. I went to Harbour Freight and bought item 7 Piece 3/8" Metric Long Ball Head Hex Socket Set item number #67888 for $14. The wobble end let me get the hex drain off easy. I also put the car on front ramps- and just measured out 2.1 qts. It was easy to change. Thanks for all the info.
