Oil Drain Plug rounded can't get off
Posted December 22, 2007 - 02:53 PM
No the problem I have now is the drain plug bolt has being completely destroyed by the last owner, it is completely rounded and wont move.
I have filled 2 sides as flat as possible and tried using a vice grips but it just rounds off again. The only thing I can think off is to weld a bolt onto it and try that, anyone know is it aluminium or steel bolt.
Anyone have any other ideas I could try or a easy way to drain with out taking the bolt out as I won't be able to get the welding done for another 2 weeks.

Ordinary vice grips flex too much.
Or drill out the plug and use ezy- outs .

Are you serious? TT now has spell check.
Dead serious. What does "wallah" mean (unless you meant voilà)?
