Hi

Was changing my oil just now and my sump plug has snapped off in the hole.
It is one that is two piece a temperature probe running through a hollow plug so the broken piece should come out no problem with an easy out as it was barely finger tight when it snapped.

My question is where will i get a new plug like this? I only need like the hollow sump plug piece. Will any plug like this fit or will i have to work out which kind my one is??
The only mark on it kind of looks like an hourglassish shape inside a circle.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement one from??

Someone must know where you can get them from.

I've bought a magnetic job for now but its a pain not havin the gauge working.

A guess the same place you can buy gauge set up must be able to source spares but my car came with it already fitted.

Fit a sandwich plate between the block and oil filter, it's a much better way of doing it. When you use a 1/8NPT tap on an M12 sump plug, IMO it takes away to much material, and you will always have problems with the plug snapping.

Try searching on ebay, there's a guy selling them on there, you will need a 3/4 UNF sandwich plate.
