Does anyone know if it is mandatory that the auto transmission drain plug be replaced with a new one when the fluid is drained through it? The Bentley manual says to replace it, but it does make any sense to me. Anyone out there with experience with this?

The drain plug has an integral soft metal seal. While the manual recommends replacing it each time, I just reused mine without any problem. No drips yet!
