I have just got a 'new' zafira
...which needs an oil change...

My dad (who is usually good at stuff like this) is having trouble getting the sump plug off...

He wants to know the torque settings (it seems tight???) and I guess any other tips would be useful...

Thanks

Well he wouldn't need the torque settings to take it off, but I suspect that it's been tightened up too far previously. It should be a standard anti-clockwise undo screw, so perhaps a little more force will get it free. They don't usually 'rust' on as they've usually got a liberal coating of oil on them...

You could 'try' WD40, but it's going the wrong way for it to be soaking it in.
A possible try it to try tightening it up a touch further & then backwards to undo as it may just be crud that needs to be 'unseated'....
Although judging by the date of your post, he's probably got it fixed now....
