Focus mk3 1.6 EcoBoost Oil Change

After an infuriating call I had with the local dealership I decided to either change the oil myself or at an indie shop. Can the oil filter be reached from the top of the engine or only from underneath?

it should be underneath if it`s the round metal oil filter on your car, unless your oil filter is the paper filter type then it will be on top

I can't answer your question but why not just get under and find out? You have to jack the car up to get at the sump plug and put a pan underneath anyway...
I was planning on using a vacuum pump to get the old oil out.

Sod that. They take forever and means buying a pump (if you don't have one). You also wont get to inspect the sump plug for little bits of metal that may have been floating around.
