General location of the oil filter
The oil filter is located here
TIP! If you don't have an oil filter wrench, try using some sandpaper to grip the old oil filter. This only works when you can get a good grip on the filter, which is not always possible on European cars
Using an oil filter wrench, unscrew the filter anti-clockwise and remove the old oil filter. Catch any waste oil with a tray. Now clean the area with paper towel
Before fitting the new filter, smear the sealing ring of the oil filter with a thin film of fresh oil, which makes it easier to remove next time. Now clean the filter area on the engine with paper towel and screw on new filter until it touches, then tighten.
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, then start adding smaller amounts. Keep checking dipstick level and fill to the upper mark on the dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL.
Keep checking the dipstick level. It should be just below the MAX level on the dipstick.
MAX-MIN dipstick positions
Don't forget to replace the dipstick and oil filler cap securely. Run the engine, let it idle for a few minutes, switch off. Check for any oil leaks. Finally, re-check oil level on dipstick
You may need to remove this protective cover to gain access to the oil filter
