General location of the oil filter cartridge
Here it is....
Using a 24mm 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, 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, 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
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
