best bet, get yourself a good pair of vise grips (locking plyers). If you do not own a pair, you local auto parts store or Home center sells them. If you can not get them off with vise grips, you will have to take it to you local mechanic.

Have somebody WELD a rod onto the stripped plug & use that 2 turn it -- then throw the rod & plug away & put in your new drain plug with a new gasket for the plug.

How do you remove stripped T6 screws from Oakley sunglasses?

Hopefully you stopped once you realized it was stripped. If you did then your best option is to use a T7 driver and first tighten it (turn it clockwise) so that it can grab onto the un-stripped portion of the head. Then turn it (anti-clockwise) to loosen. Hope this helps. I tried this on my stripped screw on the Juliets and it worked. If it is stripped real bad and you went at it a few times then ideal would be to walk into an optical store and see if they can do it for you. cheers!

How do you take stripped screw out of psp?

Ways to remove a stripped screw: Create a notch which you can fit a cross-cut screwdriver into using a metal file. This only works if the screw head protrudes enough to get the file into it. Drill out the head of the screw, remove the part it was holding in, and use the new angle to try and remove it. Carefully fix a rod to the screw itself (using glue) so that when you turn the rod the screw turns with it. (This runs the risk of gluing the screw in permanently unless you're good at precision).
