Scenic II 1.9 DCi Oil Change *pics*

OK, the wife's scenic was begging for an oil change, the only time I had was friday eve, in the dark! Here goes:

Car was raised, i used ramps.

Engine cover removed, it just pops off.

Underneath now, the undertray needs to come off. 7 10mm screws, here 2 of the side ones.

2 at the back here:

The tray will now drop down, undo 3 bolts at front and it'll come away.

Here's the sump, looks quite oily - the car is 4 yrs old and 70k miles. Where's this coming from?

An 8mm square drive will be needed to unscrew the sump plug:

Undo the screw & get ready!

After 18K miles, this oil was very dirty!

I then proceeded to get absolutely covered in oil due to a stuck filter, so couldn't take anymore pics. The filter is best loosened using an appropriate tool, accessed from underneath the vehicle. Once loosened I reached down through the engine bay and removed it.

The new filter was screwed on until resistance was met and then turned a further 3/4 of a turn, as instructed on the filter body.

The sump plug was refitted with a new washer (1.33 UKP from Reno) and tightened.

The sump was then filled with 5W40 Fully synthetic oil until the dipstick indicated it was full.

All in all, a dirty job but well worthwhile - just don't do it in the dark!

An excellent post.

A good advice to owners of wood burning stoves follows:

Mix your used engine oil with sawdust or woodchips from a thicknesser - don't ever poor it down your toilet. Just ideal for starting the fire! I keep a bucket of the stuff in my living room. There is no smell of oil , only pleasant reek of wood.

Put the old spin on filter in the stove. You get about an hour of heat out of it. Then place it in the recycle bin.

burning the midnight oil ay?
18k miles seems alot without changing the oil , renault turbos seem to take great offense to large intervals.
