You can reach it if you have the right H pipe installed. At least, that was my experience on a T3 Cali.

But you're not talking about a T3 are you?  As you were.

It's a chicken and egg situation mate, maybe some numpty put the collector box in front of the gearbox drain plug.
On your behalf, I've decided to sort the age old "which came first" philosophical argument.
I've been onto Amazon, and ordered a chicken and an egg.
I'll let you know ...

Yes not too bad where it's just a pipe, I found a socket extension would go past it, but with the modern ones I don't know, obviously a PITA.
