Ooops! Do not do this!

Its a steep learning curve!!!
Yes i managed to make a mess out of a very basic job. I overtightened them when trying to figure out my torque wrench and the next oil change this happened

It is quite common for those to break and car exhaust mounts from an auto shop or ebay etc. are the cheap easy answer. :028:

.... also, are you saying you remove the guard to do an oil change, I have never removed the guard on my 2015 XRt as the drain plug is accessible through the guard. :027:

I do remove the guard when changing the oil to give the guard a good clean and to avoid oil running on it. Seeing the mess now i think maybe it is not worth the trouble.
Thanks for the link. Will seek replacement mounts and nuts since i have also stripped them

I bought an oem one from eBay recently, for my 2012 xc. I noticed the part number had changed, and the new part is not as good as the original. The orig had hex steel end plates, and the replacement is just a rubber hex moulded assy. I did successfully clean and superglue the original back together, with good results, so have a spare now.
Progress, I suppose...
