    Default Help : af40 stripped fill bolt

    Hi,
    during the automatic gearbox oil change procedure, using a torx key, I messed up the fill bolt stripping it ( clearly the factory default torque was so different from the 55 Nm reported by the repair manual ). Now i'm wondering how to remove it. Anybody has any idea?
    Here's a pic of this bast..d ( before the mess... ).
    Thank folks.

    Could you get someone to try and lever the head up either side with two small screwdrivers, whilst you turn the Torx head, it might just be enough to catch the thread and unwind it.(with a bit of luck).

    From reading i take it he has rounded it. Hammer and a chisel to catch the edge of it should'nt take much to loosen it. Then replace it with a brand new one and dont over do it lol.
