Snapped the radiator drain plug clean off, of course I did. Like anything could ever actually work for once on this peace of ****. Hand tightened it and a half turn with the socket and it came off with no force at all. I ****ing turned the socket with two fingers for christ sake. Question is, how the hell do I get it out. Even when it was all the way unthreaded before it broke something was keeping it from just coming out? Any helps appreciated as always.

just pull it out with some pliers/etc.

replacements (although they look slightly diffrent) are as close as your local advance/auto zone/etc. their about 3 dollars.

no big problem at all.

it's just got a little plactic t thing on it (like the tags on clothes at a department store) just pull it out (if its completely loose, if not finish unscrewing it then you'll see it's just hanging by some strands of plastic which form the t thing I'm talking about)

Had this happen to me on my old '02. I felt the same as yourself, but like Casper said man just yank that bastard out. I ended up having to get the drain cock from the dealership.

I'll go to the stealer if I have to, but I'm a little ticked at them right now since they ripped me off on the heater core hose. The substitute casper posted looks awesome since it's able to just be hand cranked real good. Hope I can find something like that.

Thanks for everything guys got the one casper posted from pep boys. Easy fix since the threaded part of the old one still have the hex shape in it, came right out with an 8mm alen wrench.

^Awesome avi by the way. That guy finally found a use for t tops besides leaking lol

I goofed around with an S2K once in the 5.0 and my buddy started doing that **** to my other friend in the S2K. It was absolutely hilarious.
