Re: Filler Bolt.

I am guessing you mean sump bolt - if you can get a pair of mutli grips on it, file the side down to make em flat better grip that way, or very carefully hacksaw a slit into ti, and use a big flat screw driver to undo

Re: Filler Bolt.

I thought all T5 manuals used plugs with allen key slots, you need either inhex sockets or Allen keys.

Re: Filler Bolt.

Yup all T5s have internal hex bolts. I'm not sure about the Autos though.

Re: Filler Bolt.

You will need an Imperial set of hex keys, i think its a 3/8s hex.

Re: Filler Bolt.

if it is a hex key and youve stripped it then you got a BIG problem....try a cold chisel. usually works but youll just have to replace the bolt

Re: Filler Bolt.

The problem with using a chisel, is there isnt much room up in there, where the plug is.
Every time i change my gearbox fluid i have to remove my cat.
