    It looks like you have a 2016 RS.
    You may need to put the Juke on stands so you can use a longer pipe. If the fill plug is the same way on your Juke, there is not enough clearance to get a breaker bar in there. "Low profile" socket is another option. Those are usually sold in kits and are quite expensive.

    - Are the fill plug and drain plug located the same as in my pictures? (taken on a 2013 S AWD)
    - Are you using the Allen wrench or the box wrench? How long is the handle?

    Here is something that worked for me. I took a deep well 10MM socket and a fairly long extension and placed it on the end of the 10mm L-wrench, essentially creating a longer handle.

    thanks for the recommendations guys. Well i was able to finally get the fill and drain plug off using a stubby hex and a 15 inch breaker bar. drained and fill the transfer case, tomorrow the rear diff. hopefully i can get rid of the "wine" i hear. though i suspect that could be from my intake and i am a bit paranoid.

    Perfect! I didn't think your write up could be any better, I stand corrected.

    I did the trans case fluid maintenance last fall along with the rear dif. Your write ups with pics made the job familiar prior to getting under the car and thus much easier. Thanks

    Now, how is it that your Juke is so clean underneath...?

    Ha, ha. I found a gas station with the perfect touch-free car wash including the perfect underbody wash. It is not cheap, but they don't cut corners with soap or water or pressure.

    Over the years several Juke owners with the CVT transmission have reported hearing a "whine". Without actually hearing the sound and under what conditions it occurs, it's hard to tell if it's the classic CVT whine. Some who had the CVT whine report a CVT fluid change eliminated it. Some members, including a couple Nissan techs here, have recommended CVT fluid change at 15 to 30K mile intervals.
