Actually the drain plug came off easily with a big allen wrench. I cant remeber which one, but it didn't take much to move it. Just beware that if the oil is hot, which it should be (so the gunk stays in the oil and doesn't settle), it will come out extremely fast!! Use a walmart or autozone $8 / 10 quart drain pan. It will fit under the car when you lower the jack. It takes about 20 minutes for the oil to drain.
