Just tried changing my oil, and the torx socket gave way no the sump plug.... Just turns around nicly now
What are my options guys ?
List in order of cheepness please
new torx bit for a start give the sump plug a tap whith the hammer normaly cracks the crap from it then try the torx bit
i think there was a thread about this not long ago
So you've knackered the star shaped recess in the sump plug?
ohh i get you the sump plug is nackered not the tx bit
you could try a screw remover its like a wood screw but with a left handed thread you tighten the remover and it trys to unscrew the plug
im not sure what the sump plug looks like on yours but gan you get a pair of stilsons on it
or file two parralell flats on it so you can use a spanner on it
theres a couple of ideas for you
other than that it could be a new sump i think
try knocking a allan key into it that normally works are me at work!

Still no luck
I tried knocking a larger torz bit into it, but that did work.
If I file it down for a spanner will it still be drivable should it fail?
If I goto a garage and say "sort it"... whats the likly cost?
My D.I.Y luck is non existant, lol
This happened to me, I used a bigger torx bit and a breaker bar to crack it off.
other wise use my favorite and most versatile tool in the world. Mole grips lol
