So I just bought a new general. I decided to get familiar with it. I started with checking fluid levels. Bc I'm sure the dealer wouldn't have missed anything...right?? The front diff was low next I checked the rear. How the heck can I get that plug out, the receiver is welded right in front of the plug...any ideas. All :surprise:

It was not easy. I loosened it with the Torx driver and grabbed it with some needle nose pliers. I am considering cutting out that piece above the receiver to make it easier. This part was not well thought out.

That sounds good. Look like the oil filter change will be challenging as well. Also, I wish the oil dipstick was easier to access.

Oil filter isn't all that difficult. I have found the best to access it is to remove the CVT discharge tube and you easily access it from there. If you don't have a filter wrench take a new filter with you to your local auto parts and pick the proper fitting removal cap.

This is what I use and it makes it very easy after removing the CVT Tube as Roadrunner stated.
