Recommended Posts

Looking at doing an oil change and want check if the sump plug is reverse threaded or not? Before I start tightening it in error. 

Cheers

Lol!  Worth checking though!  You got it out?

Nope ended up going to a mates to help him clean off his series3 chassis and engine ready to roll it into a garage for an overhaul. Just tried again but its solid. Might have to gently tease it with an impact

Oh dear!  They're fairly robust so I can't imagine it'd snap but you never know with a Landy!  Remember a new copper washer when you put it back in.  I suppose, as the oil is coming out, there's no harm in a bit of heat to help it...

Already have the washer and a new sump seal sat waiting.. Just need it off... Flogging spanner might be worth a try

Obviously, you will check why it was so tight? And replace the washer? 293959?
