The location of oil filter is under this engine cover
Release the cover using a sharp vertical tug. Use both hands
General location of oil filter
Use a 32mm filter wrench 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. Remove filter, clean area and replace filter. Fit any sealing rings supplied with the replacement filter
You are now ready to refill the engine with fresh oil. Open the oil filler cap and use a funnel to avoid spillage
Pour half the new oil in first, wait a minute for the oil to go to the sump, now start adding smaller amounts. Keep checking 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.
