    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2004

    Default Stupid Sump Plug but Good Ending

    Ok, Ill start with a tip...

    If your sump plug is stupid like mine and is on stupidly tight and breaks 2 Torx keys then you can drain the oil from a sender on the front of the sump.

    Anyways as you can tell i tried to change my oil today, used the engine flush but when it came to taking the oil out, the sump plug wasnt having any of it and decided it didnt like both of my torx keys. Back to halfords for a refund. Anyway had to get the oil out somehow so used the oil sender at the front of the sump. End result nice fresh oil and new filter

    Can i get the hex key sump plug and simply replace it? If so anybody got a part number?

    Not sure, there are some differences depending on the engine. I'd need to check.
