shit....drain plug

2011 570FE

i just went to do an oil change and started talking the drain plug out...a minute later i realize i was still trying to remove the plug....stripped.

Any advice on next steps? need to first figure out how to get the bolt out, then been reading about helicoils, etc. hoping i don't have to remove the motor, but obviously will if necessary.

have seen a few posts, but not positive on which direction to head...any help / advice greatly appreciated
Thanks from Blueline

Tough one. Cant get some kind of tool there to twist it?
Drill and get a reverse thread and Bolt?
Buy new engine and gimme yours.
Weld is no fun around oil but it works as long as it dont catch fire.
Next time. You dont have to screw that hard. Usualy works with 12-15nm for that one

Being as its already stripped and just spinning in there. I would probably get a vice grip on there and if pulling while unscrewing doesnt work then hook the vice grip up to a slide hammer.(Auto Body puller type) I wouldnt hammer it back too hard though. Just tap it enough to get it to start threading out.
Then use heli coil to repair.

thanks all. with some patience and a little leverage from a flat head i got it out. looks like there might have been a heli coil in there from last owner. thinking i'll go with a time sert. just bummed as it looks like i need to pull the engine as space is too small to get a direct line. unless dropping the engine is an option /faster? appreciate any thoughts

For next time if the head of the bolt is stripped. Use a 1/2" 6 point socket you'll have to tap it on with a hammer. It Works on 13mm heads. It hasn't fail Me yet.

Ya here you can't rush anything, it's not difficult to fix it but you will need patience and be precise. First you need room to drill exactly straight. If you see old helicoil it must be removed, try good quality pick, really small flat screwdriver or whatever might get at it. If you have torches and are good with them then with smallest tip you can heat coil and take it out like a wire glowing red hot-but need experience to do this. There are different types of coils- I would probably use standard old fashion regular coil. If there is not much aluminium "meat" in there then next size up but fine thread is the way to go, or coil that looks like pipe threaded inside and outside- this one I would install on green bearing setting compound, its something like threadlock but much better. Or metal epoxy- this way insert is installed secure and sealled to the case. Next use bolt with copper washer and you done. Maybe it would be enough to just loosen tbe engine with out taking it right out?
