Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Plug is stripped cant get it out it just turns
If you have a slightly smaller socket, not a hex socket but a pointed socket, you can drive it on with an extension and remove the plug. I that does not work, your local parts house may have a loaner extractor set that has a socket designed to drive on and bite into the plug to remove. It may require breaking the stem off the plug to get an extractor socket to fit, but not a problem If you happen to break the plug off at the threads, you may have to drill out the hole and re-tap the threads (this is a higher skill process) being careful not to ruin the hole. However, this was more common on fords where the threads were too long on the plug and became corroded preventing removal. Hope this helped. Good luck
