Koyo radiator drain plug replacement

Hi guys,

I broke the drain plug on my koyo radiator for an S4. I'm looking for a replacement. Do you know where I can find these? I have done all local part store and I was not able to find it. I have searched the forum and someone told that the stock S5/FD drain plug should fit but he didn't seem to be sure. Can someone confirm this?

Thanks

The used Koyo I bought for my FD came with no plug, so I used the one out of my stock radiator.

That was an FD radiator, though...give it a try anyway!

The drain plug on my koyo is m10x1.25, but its the u-flow model.

Not sure if s4 and s5's are the same.

N326-15-203 does not fit my Koyo, I ordered one from Mazdatrix on Sunday and one picked one up from my local dealer today because I could not wait, they are too large!

I ended up with a 10x1.5mm bolt for now.

The new Koyos come with aluminum drain plugs (or at least mine did). But I haven't seen any place that will sell just the plug by itself.
