Oil Plug problem

Hi,

I have a 2001 convertible. I went to change the oil and discovered that the oil pan plug is not a normal hex bolt. It is a recessed 4-sided plug that is a bit smaller than a 3/8 inch drive. Anyone know of a tool to remove the plug? I have not been able to locate one.

If not, anyone have a good idea on how to fashion a makeshift tool?

I thought about grinding down a 1/2 inch to 3/8 inch adapter...

Thanks,
James

Hi, you can buy an adapter for your sump plug from renault at around £26+vat, bit pricey i know but saves the skin on your knuckles!!!
