I remember seeing this post a while back in where someone had success patching it: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/show...5&postcount=24

Definitely would give it a shot.

While changing my oil, I finally installed a fumoto drain valve! I was very hesitant at first as I could not determine the clearance of the valve to the skid plate. But there is roughly a 1/4" of space. And while I do have some scuffs on my plate, they are all from a single extreme moment of evading an object. I look forward to seeing how this does on my next oil change!

This drain valve definitely looks like it fits within the skid plate clearance space.. It also looks nicely installed.. Good job.

I am extremely pleased with this product. I installed these on all of my cars. I think the valves with the nipple on the end are meant more for vehicles with higher ground clearance (more than 6 inches). I used to be in the habit of buying a new drain bolt, because for some reason the bolts start to round off on me (I only use 6-sided wrenches, never anything else, and "I don't think" I was torquing them beyond spec, but DYSLEXIA, so...).

I will say, my first time using it, I forgot to close the valve, so I dumped a quart of new oil into my drain pan before I realized it "man, this car is thirsty..."

Also, that plastic piece that "secures" the valve lever, this is a new addition (my Lexus has this too). I never had a problem with the valve "just opening up." I think Fumoto did this just to pacify some of the skeptics.

The plastic retainer does make me feel safer.
I also look forward to draining my oil now! I'll probably get the drain tube before I do it.
