This is why people pay the dealership...

First time doing the three hole oil change. Everything was going great until I tried to remove the derby cover and the T27 bolt head sheered right off. All the other loosened up without any issue.

Dealer can’t get me in until 4/2 and I just don’t have the tools to do this myself.

Pressed on with the primary oil change since I’d already drained it. Dealer service said shouldn’t be an issue to just finish the job.

Till all is said and done I’ll be $300-$400 into this oil change. So much for saving money.

$200 for oil and filter
$20 for gaskets, o-rings, and primary funnel
X Hours Labor TBD at $102.00/hr


Frustrating.

Darn, maybe somebody here can give a few suggestions that you’ll be able to try out before the dealership appointment.

Don't sweat it. I do all my own tinkering myself and I'm no expert. But something always happens or hits a snag no matter how minor.
@!it happens!

If the head sheared off, when you remove the other screws and remove the primary cover there should be some threads showing of the screw in the primary. You might be able to either get a pair of vide grips in it and remove OR take a Dremel and cut a slot in the end and use a flat screwdriver to remove.

Good luck

Its those cheap chrome screws that come with those covers. Heads will pop off while you are trying to toque them.

There wasn't enough of that bolt sticking out to just grab it and twist it on out?

I would take it to a local machine shop before I payed $102/hr for it. You can buy an easy out and do it yourself a lot cheaper. Why not just take the primary cover off and take it to a shop?

Take the other bolts out. Theres enough sticking out. Pliers or vice grips will spin it right out. Ask me how I know this. Lol.

Tried. There’s not enough thread sticking out to grab. Tried vice grips.
