Kia Ceed 2007 - 2012  | 1.6 CDRi Oil filter change

  • time 20 minutes
  • difficulty 3
The location of oil filter is under the engine cover - this needs to be removed
Undo the two retaining fixings using a 10mm socket
Now remove the cover
Here is the oil cartridge location
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 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
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
