Diy Oil An Filter Change

24 November 2012 - 04:58 PM


I thought I would have a go at changing the oil and oil filter on my SMAX '08 2.2tdci. I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to this sort of thing. However I pretty successful doing it on a Ford Focus. I am having a few problems where I would appreciate some information from the more experienced of you.

First of all I cannot seem to get the oil sump screw off. It turns but refuses to come out Posted Image. The top of the screw is ok, I have no idea what it keeping it in other than worn threads. No oil is coming out so it seems to be pretty well sealed.

The second problem is I cannot locate the oil filter. It looks like it is within a compartment but where?

Your help and thoughts would be much appreciated.

Many thanks
