328xi GM trans fill plug size 17mm but it's not working

Hi guys, I'm trying to change the GM transmission fluid. Accord to lots of thread and pelican instruction the fill plug size requires a 17mm. (FYI: one part of the Pelican instruction says is 16mm which is a typo, because the tool required says 17mm).

Anyways a 16mm won't fit the fill plug, but 17mm fits. But there's wiggle room so I didn't try to undo the fill plug anymore.
Is it normal there's small wiggle room? When I tried to undo the fill plug, it looks like if I try to undo it few more times I could strip the plug.

Wrap the smaller hex with a few layers of paper until the hex fits snugly. The paper will take up the slack.
