Re: Frozen/Stripped Differential Fill Plug

Yup use the chisel and hammer method, get a new plug, the reason this happens is someone probably did not put a little oil on the o ring, if you do not the o ring will seize the plug ,same thing that happens to a oil filter, always use you're finger and wipe a little oil on the oring
