Transmission Drain Nut???

Hey,
OK so I went to change my tranny fluid, first time on a honda.
And i found that the drain bolt was completely round and uses a "Square-Shaped" Allen key to loosen.
Where can i get this other then Honda, I'm going to jump to the conclusion that they are over priced on this part, where can i get one? How much does it cost? And what should i be asking for when i go shopping for it?


OOORRRR does anyone have one that i could use??

P.S.... my lazy hasnt gone to look for it yet... maybe it's an easy thing to find.. maybe it isnt.. BUT with school and all @ this current moment in time this is faster then actually shopping.

Thanks

The "Square-Shaped" Allen key you speak of is not some special tool from Honda. It's the drive part of a 1/2" ratchet.

Well, based on fact. That is what I use when I change my tranny fluid. I highly doubt the drain plug is any different on your car. Just make sure it's the right size ratchet.

Well, it's whatever size my rachet drive is. You could be right, but one will work.
