    Don't think many Vauxhall Sumps are
    Normal nuts anymore most are t47. And you can bet it will be a t45 in use as 47 are hard to get hold of. Mine was a snap on costing about 15 quid for 1 socket

    T47?

    Is that a typo? If not a hex bolt, then it will be a T45

    Not a typo its actually a t47 not 45 as snap on advertise it for use with Vauxhall sump plugs. Try your 45 next time and you will see it's a little loose in there.

    If it's in there for good, there are other ways of getting the oil out, see:

    I haven't got one, but there use seems to be quite common...
