Gearbox Plug

Can the washers be reused for the gearbox drain and fill plugs?

I confess I have reused & never had a leak/drip problem on a diesel RAV or a diesel urban cruiser (gearbox, transfer and diff).

I usually change the sump plug washer on an engine oil change. That's probably not essential either, but I've got a stock of them and it feels the right thing to do. :)

Ok thanks, I'm going to change gearbox oil, and the Toyota dealer is miles away so if the factory washer could be reused then it saves a journey.
