Thought a new thread title on here would be useful for people searching for CDTi sump plug problems...
Having just had the car off the road for much longer than I expected for a simple oil/filter change my advice is:
Or take it to a garage
- Try using a 1/2" socket to remove it. 13mm can be a loose fit.
- If you have to use a 13mm socket, particularly a 12-sided one, buy a replacement plug and washer first... Six quid something well spent.
- If it hasn't been out before it might be be b tight and a b to remove.
- When refitting don't crank it up too much.
