Default Removing a rounded sump bolt

We another problem for me.

Went to change the oil yesterday and the sump bolt is rounded, it's Allen key type, it's like someone has used a braker bar to put the bloody thing on.

I need some adevice on removing the thing guys if you's can.

They is not much room under the car mind.

If theres sufficient head of the sump plug showing you could then carefully try using stillsons.

if its a 2.0l hdi the only thing you'll get on is a large set of mole grips, i had the same problem, theres only about a 2/3mm flange on the sump bolt, and if you cant get it off that way, your going to either need a garage to do it or weld a 10mm nut onto your sump nut then use a 17mm socket to get it off, then get to your local engineering/motor factors and get a new sump bolt with an external head from memory i thinks its m14x1.25mm thread.

once you have it off, replacement sump and copper ring can be bought from peugeot directly very cheap.

You wont catch it on a speed bump your more likely to smash the sump first !!

Im not saying that's the cure im just saying its possible I have done that when the sump threads are stripped as a spark plug is longer so catches the good threads further in thus saving having to replace the sump and it never hit any speed bumps.

To be honest I found this out through someone else having done it to a car I was working on !
