General location
The oil filter is located here, it is really very awkward to access. We strongly recommend a garage to do this work!
Using a oil filter wrench, unscrew the filter anticlockwise and remove the old oil filter. Catch any waste oil with a tray. Now clean the area with paper towel
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, 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 recheck oil level on dipstick
