Re: [DML] Re: oil pan gasket removal

Just to clarify...  (Dave, you're welcome to 
have this in the tech section)

Don't want you pulling oil drains :-)

BTW when you turn it over, you will inevitably get a dribble here and 
there - I find a flattenned cardboard box does a good job of soaking up 
any drips

As for drain plug tools - the 8mm square key is common to a lot of 
French cars and the tools are quite easy to get here. Any set of 
socket-style tools will have an 8mm in it. I got one from Teng, lost it, 
then got one from Snap-On which I like because it has a 19mm head.
