Loosen the sump plug anti-clockwise using the correct sized socket. The fit is very important as the bolt can round if the bolt is tight, but it shouldn't be. If you need more leverage, use an extension like a pipe on the end of your ratchet handle. If you have to do this then the nut was much too tight. You should also remove and replace the circular paper drain plug gasket. If you dont have a spare one a metal washer can be used if it is in good condition. Try not to drop it in the oil it can be a pain to find in black oil and it can be difficult to get it back, oh and very messy.
