Stuck Strainer Cap

Postby E.T.Smith » Sat Oct 05, 2019 12:36 am

On my latest oil change, the strainer cap absolutely refused to budge, so I was unable to do the strainer-cleaning part of the process. I tried different 17mm wrenches from different angles, and all I got from it was a bolthead so rounded I'm pretty sure I'll have to replace it. Anyone else have this problem, and have a solution to suggest?

I had the same problem (previous owner was a gorilla!) I ended up carefully breaking the cap apart, then fitted a new one. Two or three models use the same part, it is easy to source. Good Luck
