I want to perform a drain and fill on my 05 Outback LL Bean. It looks like I need an allen wrench to remove the tranny bolt.

Does anyone know what size allen wrench to remove the tranny bolt?

sure it isn't a T-70 Torx ?

that's what I needed on my 06 WRX. got it at Amazon, or maybe Autozone, less than $6 or $7 IIRC.

Let me suggest an alternate way to get a full flush DIY. You should still do a drain and refill to start off, but then use the existing pump in the transmission to pump the fluid out of the transmission, through the cooler and out a line you take off.

Directions are here: DIY 5EAT ATF Flush - Subaru Legacy Forums

You will have to modify the directions for the H6, but I bet its very close to the same.

This is the best way to do this! I know it seems like a bad idea to start your car with the transmission line unhooked, but this really does work well!

Its not the T-70 torx, cuz I have that tool as well. I will look into "tdelker" idea of flushing the tranny.

The transmission requires an 8mm Allen to drain, the Torx T70 is for the front differential to drain. You also notice that you'll likely need a 10mm allen to change the rear differential as well.
