Roger, I think I first heard about a slotted socket tool for the petcock from you on this board. Thanks ! I made one by cutting a slot in unused SAE socket. Using that slotted socket from below is my preferred way to remove the petcock on the two 2006's I maintain. I use a 3/8" extension about about an eight inches long. I remove the battery, since it's quick and easy and let's me light from above so I can see clearly and avoid damaging the petcock as I twist.
I did this twice in the past six months. In December I replaced a leaking water pump and installed a new radiator on the "older" 2006. I got to do it again on the 'younger' car when the water pump pulley failed unexpectedly in May.
Best of luck!
