I know this is probably going to sound stupid as hell; but how do you get the oil filler cap off? I keep twisting and it wont come off... It looks as if there is a tab on the cap but I don't want to break it...

No tab, should be just like opening a bottle. Anti clockwise

Ok, That's what my service adviser said. I just seems to keep spinning and not coming off.

The oil filter cartridge just snaps onto the oil filter cap. Its normal for it to spin on the cap. First i drain the engine oil from the pan. Then I crack open the filter cap(but don't remove it!)... I let the oil level drain from the filter housing. Then I remove the oil filter cap and cartridge and remove it on a work bench lined with paper towels. Just pull off the old cartridge and replace the large and small oil filter cap O-rings. Snap a new cartridge on and your good to go. I use a old turkey baster to suck out the small amount of old oil from inside the filter housing.

Dackel, I think he is having problems with the cap on the engine cover where you top-up the oil

Oops! I was realy tired when I replied. The oil filler cap just rotates 90' degrees, counter clock-wise to open it.
