Hopefully i can help..


Sump plugs will be anti clockwise to undo - clockwise will tighten it - sometimes these do get put on fairly tight or in some cases far too tight - so once you get your ring spanner/ratchet socket what ever your using you might need to give it tap round with hammer in anticlockwise direction..and that should get it to start moving so you can manaully take it the rest of the way out..although before you remove the plug you need a new washer for it before installing the sump plug back in..I do hope this helps
