Whats the best way to access and remove the freeze plug on a 2014 nissan xterra? I have the front passenger tire removed and have tried with long socket extensions and directly with a socket. It seems to really be tight.

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

The engine block has multiple freeze/expansion plugs, so I need to know which one on the passenger side.
