 Ha ha!  Touché .

Leave the door open wide enough and someone will eventually walk through it :P

AreaT equals 3.142(250x250)-3.142(101.5x101.5)
VolumeT equals AreaT x 51.

AreaT2 equals 3.142(241x241) - 3.142(101.5x101.5)

New VolumeT2 equals AreaT 2 x 51.

The difference is obviously VolumeT - VolumeT2 :y

In answer to the original question...  ;)

Alternatively, tighten the nut until it shears off, then hammer the bolt out...

Failing this, notch the flange, then knock the bolt out...

Just be mindful that using an angle grinder in a confined space under the car might result in impromptu face removal surgery :-X

Incidentally, it isn't actually a seal...

It us, but just never intended to be a watertight seal
Or even airtight ::)

Incidentally, it isn't actually a seal... More of a vague plug to reduce cabin noise that automatically results from having a 3' x 1.5' hole in the roof ::)

Good tips there, "cam.in.head", thanks.
I do agree with you that the drainbung has a purpose, but mine allowed a swimming [pool to develop and gave my carpets an unwelcome rainwater wash! When I managed to clear the debris, the flap was so tired it didn't work, so it got "Serek-ed" during a service!  ;D

Ron.
Only because it had never been properly looked after...

Turns out it was a camera van...

94 mph on the A303 Andover bypass a week ago. NIP arrived on Wednesday apparently.

Currently some twitching going on ::)

Firstly, link was probably to an illegal copy of the manual ;)

Secondly, that manual will be fine for your Omega, but you still need an Omega one for the rest of it.

Lastly, your Omega is a 2.2dti CDX. Omega is the model, 2.2dti is the engine,  CDX is the trim level/specification :y

Lizzie, apply a spot of thought before typing  ;)

A container ship is highly unlikely to be doing 20 knots in such conditions... 5-10 more likely...

OK, new equation is:

AreaT2 equals 2(3.142x241) - 2(3.142x101.5)

New VolumeT2 equals AreaT 2 x 51.

The difference is obviously VolumeT - VolumeT2 :y
