Magnetic Transmission Drain Plug

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to obtain the Renault Transmission Drain Plug # R77 03 075 012 in the US??

I've searched everywhere and can't seem to locate a vendor, etc.. for this part. While I'm at it I'd also like to purchase a magnetic motor oil drain plug. Any ideas for US purchase. If I need to, I'd ship it from the UK.

I wonder if the drain plugs for the NG renault boxes will cross to the UN1. I believe they came on the Fuego. I may try and find one to see if it fits. As for the engine plug, what about epoxying one into the hollow recess in the plug?

I'd be tempted to make my own but I 've not long ago took a 90,000 mile box apart and the metal collected on the magnet inside wasn't that bad tbh.

I tried getting one for the engine itself but as said, the easy option is to buy one of them molybdumum (rare earth) magnets and glue / press it in to an slight interference fit.

Maybe the ones for the DeLorean...they have UN-1's?

Looks the same to me on this website:

Or go to

then go to transmission and clutch and scroll down to the bottom.
