The oil plug located in front left corner of the oil pan is an allen wrench slot, and there is only the width of a finger between it and the frame to get an allen wrench in there, and common allen wrenches are too long before the bend to get between the plug and the frame. Is there a special tool used for this purpose?

On all Dyna series bikes, the oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission. The oil dipstick is on a corner of the transmission. It''s a large diameter, about 2 inches, plug with knurling around the edges. Pull this out and the dipstick is attached to this plug. It's got two marks on it. The top mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.
Jack up your Porscheusing a floor jack and place the car securely on jack stands at all four corners using the factory jacking points.
Place an oil container under the oil drain plug of the motor.
Using an 8-mm allen socket, remove the drain plug at the bottom of the oil pan.
Let the oil drain thoroughly--this will take about 20 to 25 minutes.
Once all the oil is drained from the engine, install a new
drain plug along with a new aluminum sealing washer. Tighten the drain
plug to 37 lbs .
The oil filter cartridge is located in front of the oil pan
on the right side. With an oil filter removal wrench, unscrew and remove
the cartridge. Be careful of spilling oil.
Install a new oil filter cartridge and O-ring. Before
installation, run a bead of oil around the O-ring to lubricate it.
Torque the oil filter cartridge to 19 lbs.
Pour new oil into the oil filler neck located in the engine
bay. 1998 to 2001 911s (996) take 8.5 quarts, and 2004 and up take 8.25
quarts. Newer 911s (997) take 9 quarts. When filling the engine with
oil, pour in 8 quarts and then use the dipstick to get the amount of oil

The oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission. There are two drain plugs on the oil pan. They used to be one on the left front corner and one in the center. Now, they are both on the front edge of the pan right next to each other. The one on the outside is the oil drain plug. The transmission drain takes a hex key or allen wrench where the oil drain takes a standard wrench or socket.
The oil pan drain plug should require a 14mm hex head wrench to remove. The transmission pan requires a 10mm allen head socket, or wrench to remove. Are you sure you're trying to remove the correct drain? The oil drain should be on the passenger side and on the rear corner of the pan.
underneath the bike on the left side of the oil pan, right at the front edge is a bolt (some look like a allen wrench bolt). Take it out and also take out the oil dipstick to let it flow easier -but before you do it run the bike for about 5 minutes to heat the oil up some.
It's a regular 12mm bolt (it doesn't look like a "plug") protruding horizontally from the back corner of the oil pan (aluminum pan with a waffle pattern, pretty much centered just in front of the front axle).
