    Quickie - sump plug ?

    Sorry about this,

    servicing the car tom but I can't see the sump plug from looking under the car. Can anyone tell me whether it is a hex key, bolt head etc. and also what size ?

    Don't want to put the car up and then find out I don't have the right one.

    Also, whether or not it is a straight fit back in with the old plug or if there is a copper washer etc. on the back.

    cheers,

    G.

    its at the back of the sump.. think its a 19mm or a 21mm

    no copper washer, but a new sump plug with inbuilt washer only costs 99p so i would just replace it anyhow

    Replace it....but still, good luck with not threading the hole. The OEM sumps are utther Sh*te. I use a sucker to suck the oil out instead.... Easier, quicker and less messy!

    Does 30Nm sound right for the torque rating on the sump plug ?
