Nice DIY write up. Did you loosen the top oil cap before you take off the bottom drain plug?

Great vid John!!!! I learned a lot from that video...like the o-rings and washer come with the filter and there is a nice little trap door to drain the oil. I was worried you would have to remove a large section, plus it is easy to remove the filter and not have oil all over. There is no way I am paying $130 now when the parts are only like $60!!!

PS. You have to love the big bag of yellow Costco Micro towels!!!

Thanks.

Great video...but did you just get underneath the car with just jacks supporting it? I didn't spot any jack stands. Just want to throw it out there but use some jack stands!! Don't want to see anyone here as another statistic :wink:

No, I removed the drain plug and let the oil start to drain, then I moved up to the filter. I left the drain plug out during the filter change. After the new filter was installed, I replaced the drain plug with new crush washer.:biggrin:

Agreed. I had a jackstand on the drivers side you could not see.:thumbup:
However, it was not supporting the car...the car was lifted and held by two jacks.

I found on another forum to torque the drain plug to 25nm. Not sure if this is correct. When I removed the drain plug it came off very easy...surprisingly easy:biggrin:. I tightened it to a snug fit and just gave a little extra turn, this is how I've done all my cars for years, never had an issue.

Great vid John,

I shall be changing my oil in another 5000 miles.

Just a quick question about jacking up the car. I noticed that the hard-plastic jack points are pretty easy to damage if you try and use the trolley jack on them directly. Did you use an adaptor in between the jack and the car jack cup?? Just wondered as I plan to change the CDV next weekend.

Cheers,

Mad Chemist.

Mad Chemist-
I actually used an extra plastic floor tile between the jack and the plastic jack point on the car. After the job I actually had an impression on the plastic floor tile of the plastic jack point. However, I had no damage to the jack point on the car. I suppose using some wood would work also. The bad thing, is there is not a whole lot of clearance between the jack point on the car and the jack when its completly lowered.

Cheers...:headbang:
