5w-30 fully synthetic is best but 5w-30 part synthetic will do.

hi,
never done an oil change on one of these before but i presume its at the rear somewhere. does your car have a plastic cover under the engine? you will probably need to remove that first and have a look at the back of the engine

oh, how much oil did you buy? IIRC the 2.0tdci holds 6 litres...

Cheers for the reply,
I found it in the end it is under the cover but right at the front near the rad, yeah 6 ltrs is right but i only bought 5 :blink: so back to the shop for me.
