You will need to remove the engine cover, use both hands and with a firm upward tug it should release
General location of the oil filter
Here it is
Always buy the correct, model-specific filter socket. Using a 36mm socket, fit the tool securely onto the oil filter housing. ALWAYS use the correct tool for this job. Any other tool will damage the oil filter housing
Loosen the oil filter housing by unscrewing anti clockwise. Remove by hand. Old oil will be released, so have a tray handy
You are now ready to refill the engine with fresh oil. Unscrew the oil filler cap
Always using a funnel, pour half in first, wait a minute for the oil to go to the sump, now add smaller amounts. Keep checking the dipstick level. Fill to the upper mark on the dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL!
Keep checking the dipstick level, the final level should read just below the MAX position on the dipstick
The MAX-MIN dipstick positions
Always replace the dipstick and oil filler cap. Now start the engine and idle for a minute or so. Switch off and check for any leaks, finally check oil level again on dipstick
Remove filter, clean area and replace filter. Fit any sealing rings supplied with the replacement filter
