My guess,(and stress it's only a guess!) is that as with many 'utility' vehicle manufacturers (eg Land-Rover) they've eliminated the replaceable filter for a sealed unit. More expensive of course, but the 'plus' side is that it's less messy to change, and (as I did once with my old 'Landy')if the gasket on the unit has worn a bit thin, as soon as you turn on oil pees out all over your garage floor!

Hi, I've just purchased a Kangoo Venture which I've named 'Hoppy'! To date am very impressed with both his performance (particularly the mpg!) and comfort/space etc.
