Hope you guys can help me quick on this one.
I did an oil change this AM and seems that I overtorqued the drain plug and must've loosen the thread. Oil is now leaking and the spill is getting bad...
Does anyone know the correct drain plug size?I've heard that the size is 14mm/1.5in. Can someone confirm this?
The dealer is a good 10mi away and am afraid to drive the car...Have to go to the nearest auto supply store, pronto. Thanks all.

Re: HELP! - 1.8T Drain Plug Size? (Tipchronic)

There are several engine codes and there may be two variations.
If it was less than an inch in diameter, M14-1.5 is correct (14 mm diameter, 1.5 mm pitch/lead), otherwise I think it is M27-??. The correct torque is 22 ft-lb.
