Sump plug

Was doing an oil change at 4000km, when I found this .One very nasty chewed out thread Contacted the dealer who did the first service and there sending me a new sump plug.This is why I like to service my bikes myself.

Rough. Steer clear of those guys. Unfortunately it happens all too often.

When life throws you curves, lean into them.

I hope you checked the state of the thread in the sump which is soft alloy, looking at that plug it must be damaged to a degree.

Went to a local bike shop got another sump plug with the same thread. Slowly screwed it in and out like a tap.Now my concern is aluminium filings in the sump Another concern is how the drain plug got in such a mess in the first place.Any ideas would be appreciated.

I wonder if that is even your original plug. Looks really old and used.

It probably got in that condition from the guy having to cut off your old crush washer.

No need to cut. I found it really easy to remove using vice grip pliers and unscrewing it.

With my Ford Mondeo (nee Fusion) car, the Dealer fits a new bolt with the metal crush washer as a standard item every time. $Au19.
The printout describes it as Washer, Sump Bolt is a poor choice of words when I said rip off price for a cheap washer, especially if it a flat white nylon one.
I was assured it was both items, and Googling the part number confirmed it. The bolt metal must be of softer metal than the sump I guess, which is better than the other way around.
The bolt is a commensurable according to Ford. Don't recall if it has a magnet insert at the oily end.

As I have used another sump plug as a tap to smooth out the sump pan thread you would assume that some of the aluminium filing are now in the sump. Any suggestions will the oil filter pick then up,or should I flush the pan
