  • time 20 minutes
  • difficulty 4
The location of oil filter is under the engine cover
Firstly, pop off the engine cover
Relocate the wiring from the supporting bracket
Here is the oil filter cartridge
Always buy the correct model-specific filter socket. Using a 32mm 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 anticlockwise. 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. Unscrew the oil filler cap and add a funnel
Always using a funnel, pour half in first, wait a minute for the oil to go to the sump. Now add smaller amounts, and 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
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 wire support, use a 10mm socket to do this
Now you have clear access to the oil cartridge
