Hi, My daughter has an 2013 UK Alto 5dr 1.0 SZ with the K10BN engine. Not sure if the gearbox oil was checked at the 45000km service. The garage was a bit evasive when I asked what was done. I have looked at the plug and it's been damaged. The 3/8th square drive is damaged around the edge like they tried but the drive slipped out. I have tried to shift it but can't move it.
Any ideas how to undo it, is their a special tool? as the fitting for the drive is quite shallow.
Thanks

First - it's not a 3/8 square drive, it's 10mm - and the damage was most likely caused by the use of a 3/8 square drive rather than the correct "special tool".

You can try using a 10mm adapter, which may or may not work not that the plug has been damaged, if that doesn't work try welding a bolt into the recess of the plug - typically the heat from the welding will help free the plug.

Hi Thank you for this prompt reply. I see that 3/8inch is smaller than the correct 10mm drive. I will get the correct tool and try again.
