    Thats just a temp fix because what happens the next time bud.. If you can get the car on some ramps and make sure engine is hot as you like hacksaw two flats on the edge of the torqs bolt and use a good set of vice grips or locking grips it will come ... Would find some where that sells helicoil kits to be on the safe side.. This is how we used to remove stubborn bolts or you could always try welding a bolt to it?

    Well, next time i'll invest in an oil extractor lol

    I've had it up on ramps and had the torx bit on a 1m bar.

    I'll try the hacksaw idea shane

    Got it sorted!, Hammered a bigger Torx piece into the plug, and used a bigger bar to lever it. Hey presto! It's budged
