Sump plug washer

Hi folks, I'm about to attempt my first ever oil change haha and need a quick bit of advice. I have a Fiat Bravo 1999 1242cc 16v 80sx, and am aware that a 12mm hex key is needed to open the drain plug. Where can I purchase a new washer seal for this, or can I just use the existing one? If not what size of washer am I looking for? I take it, its just an odinary washer that I can buy from a hardware store? Thanks

Callum

Based on the Seicento and Grande Punto I've done, neither had a washer/seal/o-ring. However, the oil filter does have a seal and the new filter will come with one attached - I assume you're changing the filter as well?

Re: Sump plug washer

doesn`t have a washer, due to being threaded in, and using a allen key,
