    Default Gearbox oil problemo

    Right guys, real big problem today, hoping someone can help.

    I had the day off so decided to change the gearbox oil, have done on my old vauxhalls no problem but the vectra fill plug was solid in the threads, after rounding the hex key hole i tried bashing in a big torx but still wouldn't come undone.

    So how would i remove this filling plug?

    I have had a good look and the only way i can see is to remove the engine/box mount an try get a mole grips onto it.

    Anyone suggest anything else?

    It will be next weekend before i get anything done due to work and i will have to order a new plug anyway.

    Its a 16v f40 box.

    Cheers.

    i had the same problem with the drain plug on my f40 box

    i ended up using a sharp chisel and knocking it round to undo it then replaced it

    Surely you can get good access to it by removing the battery and its box?
