Sump Plug Advice Please

I have just bought a 20v Weekend and want to change the oil but am stumped by the sump plug. I have a hex socket which has fitted every other Fiat I have owned but this seems like a little torx size or something.

It is an early 20v model 1997.

Any advice please as I know they can be difficult to remove but want to be sure of right type as a hex will strip teeth off a torx nut but not sure what size torx?

Help

how strange, you are correct though, both of mine have been Hex bits, if it is a torx bit try a TX40 on it and see how it fits....

Hi mate

I have just done my oil and i think you will find that it is a square drive, not sure what size.

lol.... seems everyone has something different, i guess the standard sumplugs have been replaced by aftermarket ones.

Well an 8mm hex seemed to be the closest fit but still turned inside the plug, so am going to have garage look at it tomorrow when they do my cambelt change, lucky them!

Cheers for the advice.
