    Default Rounded off the oil filter nut.

    Opps. I was changing the oil and attempting to change the cartrige filter and I rounded off the soft alloy nut of the filter cover on the Veccy V6. Am I doomed?

    If its the same as mine and is plastic and holds the disposable cartridge, then just buy a new one, they cant cost much, then just get some mole grips on the old one and bin it.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be able to buy a replacement. It might cost $100 or so though...
