Question regarding crush washers & oil drain plugs: I have the following drain plug, which has an dull silver colored washer on it. This washer seems to be too small to remove from the plug. I also have some copper crush washers - they slip on and off the plug with ease. Do the crush washers go on the plug in addition to the silver washer? Or do I need to cut the silver washer off to use the copper washers?
Attached is a picture of what I have.

yes you can remove the silver washer and use the copper crusher washer, i think the silver plate is the OEM washer from the factory ... in either case, the copper is all you need for a good seal

The new drain plugs have a crush washer that can be used many times. The older plugs on the Mkiv's 1999-2001 had a crush washer that could be reused..
