156 v6 oil sump plug halp!

hi guys,

so some genius probably used an air wrench to bolt on my m19 sump bolt to my 2004 156 v6... in the process of taking it off, i've partially rounded the brass plug...

have obtained an irwin bolt extractor and will try that...

I fear judging by how well it is fastened, that it was stripped and a strong loctite used to seal it up

may end up needing this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tchlink:top:en

in any case, assuming my sump threads are ok - anyone know where to get suitable m19 bolts? oem looks mad expensive... eg, in aus $35. None in country..

But even the official alfa part in uk seems steep 15 quid? really?

any online vendors selling cheap but good generic plugs that suit?



ps. might cut my losses and use a cheap pela oil extractor...

retap it to take a 'classic' mini sump plug.

Best regards

1. drill out the thread and put normal thread in there.
2. fit normal bolt and copper washer.
3. replace oil filter.
4. refill oil + 0.5l extra for filter.
5. drink beer.
