    The wrong oil is better than no oil at all.

    I've made my own in the past. I got a short bolt (19mm head) and filed down the sides square to make it fit. If I loose it, well, I have plenty more I can modify.

    Oh, no! Here we go again......

    Hot 306,
    A normal, preferably long type 8mm allen key should do the job.

    Problem is. "normal type 8mm square allen keys" cannot be found easily. Get under the car. Suss out what you need and order it from the internet. Or get a mechanic to do what needs to be done

    Cam,
    If it's my post you have quoted, there is no mention of an 8mm square allen key.

    Oh, by the way, Hot306's original request was for an allen key. So we can assume that is what he has established

    Sorry Mate. Did not mean to sound or get picky. I believe the key required is square. That information was gathered form the original link I posted. Its the same as the 205 if that is the case.

    Not meaning to get nit picky on you.

    Oh dear. I'm sure you guys failed maths at school. An 8mm square and an 8mm hex allen key are completely different shapes. You can buy an 8mm square drive socket, in 3/8" or 1/2" drive, from any decent tool supplier. If you are a knuckle head, you can grind off the points of an 8mm allen key to make it fit in an 8mm square!

    Some sump plugs also have a hex on the oustide, some don't. If you rate yourself as a Peugeot person, do yourself a favour and buy an 8mm square drive socket.

    If I were still a railway Fitter I would weld a piece of bar to the plug and whack it with short handled 12lb hammer

    No, you'd use cold chisel and 12lb hammer. Now that is real fitting!

    Default Little tool?

    I will show you my little tool!

    I made this in 1968 when I bought my brand new Reno 10 (I did not have cold chisel), just add a shifter to the end.

    There has been a few liters of castrol drip off my elbows.

    Should I take out a patent?
