Re: Time for a service
You need a special tool for the sump plug and a new washer.
The torque for the plug is 20nm (somebody posted the figure for me here) .
I bought the tool on
, (8mm square I think from memory)and i got one of those double ended keys 8/13 mm.
When buying the washer, you will see two different types available for 1.5 dci engines.The copper ring is I believe for those with a steel sump and the fibre type for an alloy sump.(fibre type was on mine.)
Its hard to keep the
from dripping down when changing the filter ,try this tip maybe?
aside from the above posts fuel filter (on mine ,2011) is due at 35k miles.if its never been done,its due now.
