hi guys

just need some confirmation here, i think this is the plug but its really tight, it takes a 10mm hex bit. I used an allen key but think i might need a bigger tool... any tips?

the plug in the centre, left is towards front of car

this is where it is under the car, its not covered by any splash guard.

Yes.That is the plug.No need to buy any other tool.Get a 10mm to 12mm spanner to use it as a lever with the 10mm hex.
Fords workshop manual has an explicit step by step guide for a complete auto transmission fluid change.
If you do not have it I"ll be glad to post it for you.
It is very important to warm up the engine first before starting the fluid change.
Cheers to you mate :beer:
