General location of the oil filter
Here is the oil filter
Using a 27mm socket, fit the tool securely on to 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 the filter, clean the area and replace the 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 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
