Well I outdid myself last night. didn't use my latex gloves and ended up dropping my allen wrench and drain plug after getting hot oil on my hand. Ended up looking for the drain plug the better part of the night. I cut open the drain pan, tried to purchase a new plug at AZ and O'Reilly's to no avail (04 VW -- what did I expect). I crawled on the driveway and searched every square inch. Finally found it on top of the plastic engine guard. I don't remember throwing the dang thing up there. 10 minute change turned into an hr and a half nightmare. To boot, I dropped the oil filter after I got it off and got oil everywhere!!
