These fantastic little cars have been really successful as they are practical, good looking and stylish.  Over time, many engines have been fitted from various manufacturers including: Chrysler, Toyota and Peugeot, so even the sump plug changed a few times. 

Is there an easy way to tell which sump plug is fitted to my car?
Fortunately, there is.  Rather than looking at loads of tables with engine numbers etc, and then still getting the wrong one, because the table wasn’t 100% right, just follow the these simple steps:

Have a look underneath the car at the sump, locate the sump plug and see what it looks like.

  • Does it have a round smooth black outside (27.5mm dia.) with a 13mm Hex head on it?   Then it is an SP29:

  • Does it have a round smooth black outside (27.5mm dia.) with a 13mm Hex head on it?  Then it is an SP5:

  • Does it have a round smooth outside (21mm dia.) with a 14mm Hex head on  it?  Then it is an SP10:
