I just returned from the dealer to have the rear speaker cover replaced since a hardware store put a hole in it. Well guess what? You have to replace that whole rear panel from the rear seat to the cargo hatch. $592 plus labor. Sure hope the store will pay for it. They said they would, but I don't think they envisioned it costing that much. That's crazy not making the speaker grill a separate piece.
On the oil plug. I asked the service writer where the drain plug for the 6 cyl. was. He didn't know so he asked a mechanic as he walked by where the plug was. The mechanic said "I don't know, I havent changed the oil on a Terrain yet."
The parts guy showed me on the engine blow up diagram where the plug is.
I did find out the plug also has a magnet built in the tip.

Its a drain plug. Climb under and find it. Heck, I can change the oil in our Terrain without even raising it up.

Insane about the grill though.

Its easy...Get under and look for the oil pan. The oil plug is on the rear of the motor oil pan, passenger side.

It's also on the side of the pan not the bottom. I just wanted to make sure I didn't open the wrong plug because I noticed 2 plugs on my quick look see. I'm sure once I got under the car I would know which plug was which. My Harley has 2 plugs and my other car has 3.
It neven hurts to ask when you're not 100% sure.

GM's been putting magnets in the oil plugs for a while. Makes it a ton easier to get it out of an oil pan if you drop it ;D (me? no I'd never... Ok, well once... or twice...)
