Renault Clio II - Engines - Removing oil filter
I have a 2002 1.2 16v Extreme model and I am trying to change the
filter is a paper cartridge type, but I am having trouble removing the plastic filter housing. Does it just screw off? I have tried unscrewing it by hand with no success and a puller has trouble gripping the housing because of it's ribbed surface.
I have noticed that there are two recessed star drive (torx) bolts above the plastic housing. Do these have to be loosened off before the filter housing can be removed?
Any help appreciated.
