    Sump plug problems - Won't come out!

    Last time I changed the oil the plug went in and when tightening it, it felt like it threaded but seeing as it was tight, I left it.

    Tried to take it out today to change the oil again and it would turn but not come out.

    Is my best option to call vxl for a new plug, gasket and sump?

    90502090 - sump gasket?

    90502556 - sump plug?

    9158192 - sump?

    Are these correct?

    You could always just have the threads tapped out presuming youve cross threaded it. Personally Id prefer the option of replacing the lot...just to be on the cautious side.

    All the part numbers are defo correct.... but you'll also need a plug washer @ 90528145 and possible new oil pan to carrier bolts - 16 @ 11095091

    Does the plug move at all? if you are turning the ratchet and its just spinning its more than likely cross threaded. If it is its not completely nessecary to buy a new lwer sump. You can drill out the hole then re tap a thread into it and fit a new bolt. Saves a fair bit f money instead of the possible £120 for all the bits.

    I think it does?

    Not keen on drilling and tapping, I would rather just get a new one. Best bet is vxl? Or is there somewhere online?

    Did and did. Could only get a discount on the plug and gasket, but £108 all in inc delivery which is cheaper than vxl for the sump alone.

    Didn't order the bolts though, should I have?

    You'll need some gasket sealant, and some thread lock (for the sump bolts) too.

    Just get all the old thread lock off the botls and then reapply some new stuff
