    I'm sure there are other galley plugs to be had...

    Dealership could probably hook you up for a couple bucks.

    Not the end of the world. It can be drilled/tapped. I would take it to either the dealership or an aftermarket performance shop and describe your problem. It's a relatively common occurrence, albeit in a difficult to reach location.

    There's your problem. 99% of the bolts on these cars are metric...english units will not fit properly. It's an 8mm hex socket...

    Im not sure if you can get at it but maybe try hammering a torx bit into it that will fit real tight,this has worked for me in the past but for a different application, if it doesnt work.... reply #4?

    Clear out everything around it as much as possible and use pliers.

    Another option would be to use the one at the front of the motor where the OEM oil pressure sendor is located. You would have to remove the original though and use a resistor to turn off your dummy light.

    Or get the sandwich spacer for your oil filter and use the aftermarket gauge sender on there. Prosport makes them for around $40 bucks.
