Carefully remove the air duct
General location of oil filter
Here it is
Undo three retaining bolts - use a 10mm spanner or socket
The location of the oil filter is underneath this air duct, which needs to be removed
Using a 36mm 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, replace the air duct
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 in first, wait a minute for the oil to go to the sump, now add smaller amounts and keep checking dipstick.
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 oil level again on dipstick. Replace air duct
