    I seem to remember the thread was nearly identical to the nut size on my 1.9, may be different for petrol though

    Lol, that's not how it works, it's still threaded, the idea being that any metallic debris floating about in the sump are attracted to the magnetic plug so they can be removed when the plug is removed for an oil change
