Not knowing the year or model of your car, the below link is for a 2009 versa:

I am sure you know this, but just make sure you can loosen the fill up plug before you drain the transmission fluid.

I got a 10 mm square head socket and it was too big. I did not get to change my gear oil today ☹️. Can somebody tell me if a 8 mm is the right size?

Here is everything you want to know regarding the tranny. I believe is is 8mm, but just to make sure read through the shop manual:

Thank you. This is very helpful. It may also be possible to pump/siphon the gear oil out.

I got it done and take pictures. I plan to do to DIY thread. Seems to shift better. The old gear oil did not look too dirty at 86k miles.

Its bigger than 3/8 but not by much.

You really want to remove the drain plug as its a magnet and clean the crap that has stuck to it. If its a used car, it gives you an idea how much wear has already occured.

+1 on removing the fill plug before the drain. Not that you cant use a cleaned out caulk tube to shoot oil into the drain hole and plug it fast, but its easier to use the fill hole.

Yeah, I hope to put royal purple in my tranny this weekend. My socket from amazon was an add on, so I had to buy like 25 bucks worth of toilet paper to get it.
