Re: Scenic II 1.9 DCi Oil Change *pics*

Remove engine cover (it clips on in 3 places - front right, front left, rear left)

Remove oil cap (yellow cap - this is also dipstick)

This allows all oil to drain out (I do this after sump plug is out)

Remember to change sump plug washer before putting back on

Yellow arrow shows original washer, green arrow shows new coppr washer - NOTE washer should match original - NOT COPPER TYPE. I will change at the next oil change.

Now the oil filter.

I assume the design is to allow change from underneath (although when you know where it is, you can put your arm down the front of the engine and get your hand on the filter).

Hopfully these next images help

Green arrow points to front of vehicle, yellow arrow points to oil filter (approx 1/3 way in from drivers side, roughly in line with front wheels).

In theory it should be hand tight (took me over 6 hours with different tools trying to get mine off ) I eventually put a very long scewdriver through it and used my full weight to turn it 1".

Once off, take new filter and make sure you coat the rubber ring with some oil (I just dipped my finger in the old oil and ran out around the rubber seal).

Put new filter on and hand tighten.

Make sure sump plug and washer are back on.

After sump plug is back in fill via here (use a funnel to avoid spillage).

I put 4 litres in then put cap back on and left it for 10 minutes.

Then remove cap again to check dipstick. Top up as necessary.
