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!
