    Hi All

    Any easy way to get to the coolant drain plug on a W202 petrol engine,my problem is my arms are more than half an inch thick so I keep dropping the b----y spanner there is not much room to manoeuvre yourself and undo the plug as well.
    I know it seems pathetic asking such a thing but I have tried this afternoon with not much luck

    From underneath. It's the only way.

    Get your engine hot, lay under the car for as long as it takes to free the plug. Being hot water it will hurt a lot when it hits you, a good incentive to stay awake and with the added bonus of washed hair :rolleyes::D:devil:
