    Wanted to drain my radiator on Subaru Sambar. Found the plastic butterfly drain plug. Turned it about 3/4 way, as far as it will go. There is a nipple that blocks it from going further. Anyway, nothing came out. I know there is fluid in there. Any suggestions? Thanks.
     
  2. I do believe it should come out. I think it is the o-ring stuck in the bore holding in.

    Thanks for the input. If that is the case, how do I get it out or unstopped?
     
  4. If I remember correctly with mine, I just pulled down and it popped out
     
  5. That is after I got the threads backed right off.

    The butterfly screw will only turn so far and then stop because it is hitting something. Is it suppose to spin completely around several times and then actually come off?
     
  7. It should screw out but it’s been so long since I did mine I can’t remember 100%
