    Engine oil and filter change.

    Here's how Ah did it;)

    first ah went for a wee drive to warm the oil up, then ah removed the filler cap.
    Next ah got below to undo the sump drain plug (remembering the oil could be hot! ;) )....

    and let it drain completely.....

    [​IMG]

    before sticking the plug back on with new copper washer as needed and torquing it up....

    [​IMG]

    then ah removed the oil filter with one of those filter removal tools....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next Ah smeared some fresh oil on the rubber seal of the new filter...

    [​IMG]

    gave the housing a guid wipe clean and spun the new filter on (hand tight only)....

    [​IMG]

    (some folk reckon on half filling the filter first with fresh oil, but ah prefer not to ;) )

    Then it's just a case of filling up the engine with the quantity of correct oil...

    start the engine an let it idle for a bit, recheck the oil level and top up if needed.

    That's about it... job done ;):D
