Correct me if I'm wrong.

This is just a plug with a rubber "o" ring, right?

Replace the "o" ring and make sure there are no burrs or cracks, good to go?

Unless the ring is fine and it's a pressure issue pushing oil out?

easy to do. drain the oil. remove the plug (take a big screwdriver and wrap the end w/ a few layers of electrical tape). inspect/clean sealing surfaces. order a new o-ring, if necessary. re-torque to proper value.

NVM. just take it. im sure they have a tool that's used to remove/install it
