General location of the oil filter
The oil filter
Using a 13mm SQ 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
Unscrew the filter anti-clockwise and remove the old oil filter. Catch any waste oil with a tray. Now clean the area with a 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 a paper towel and screw on the new filter until it touches, then tighten
You are now ready to refill the engine with fresh oil. Unscrew the oil filler cap and add 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 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
