You will need to remove the engine cover - use both hands to pop it off
General location of the oil filter
Here it is
Using a 76/14F 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 so 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
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 the electronic dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL
Always replace the 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 the electronic dipstick - replace engine cover when finished
