General location of the oil filter cartridge
The engine cover will need to be removed to gain access to the filter. Using both hands, lift off the engine cover
Using 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, 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 the new oil in first, wait a minute for the oil to go to the sump, then start adding smaller amounts. Keep checking the dipstick level and 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
Keep checking 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 the oil level again on the dipstick. Replace the wiring bracket and engine cover
Remove the bracket using a 10mm socket
Here is the oil filter cartridge
Note the electrical socket: it is in the way and will need to be relocated
Now relocate the electrical socket and wiring to get full access to the oil filter cartridge
