    The procedure I had to follow was because I didn't have a jack - as described. You can obviously access things under the car, from under the car. I was in a parking lot, on a mountain, 8 hours from my house, and in a province that doesn't have service centres open on the weekend. As stated, "to get this view (and to reach in if you can't get under the car)" - The guide is to say, you can do this in a parking lot with nothing but a bent fork if you're mechanically inclined and ingenuitive.

    The specialty tools listed are 1) the removal tool (it's a thing that exists at Nissan) for the breather cap, and 2) the filler tool for the trans-pan plug since the breather cap is not actually how the transmission is supposed to be filled - see Nissan tech doc provided above.

    aside from the "Super Special Tool™ available from A.C.E." ... being a joke about the mangled fork, and my company

    As per the procedure to service with a machine. I was on stands. But still would have been manageble roadside. Like I said in comment it requires mechanical competency ?

    Ps removal tool is a pick I could have opened it with a well anything ? Removing panels and excess work seems like an over eager panel puller.

    "requires mechanical competency"
    is mechanical engineering tech... k thx. The only tool I had was a fork... and I got it done. No panels were pulled, nothing was removed from the car but the breather cap.

    how do you remove the special tool step 12 and get the drain plug back in without the fluid coming out?...flip the car upside down????

    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!

    There's a plastic tube on the other end of the drain hole (attaches to the pan) they call the 'overflow tube'. So the volume of fluid below its upper lip is the volume they want in the device. But I do like step 22 "Perform this work quickly because ATF leaks" lol

    That overflow tube is key though if you're doing a full drain and fill, since if you don't remove it, there's about 2 litres of spent oil that won't be removed, and the stuff you put in will just flow of the top of it and out the tube... it can be messy.

    i see , thats kind of smart, i guess you could suck the old oil out with a thin tube shapes like a J, shove up and move to side, pull down...but removing pan probaby better, the "special filler tool" isnt really needed then, you just need to squirt the fluid in somehow.
