I am due to change the oil and filter on my 2006 Megane CC 1.9 (FAP) shortly however it is a pig of a job to access the filter, and there is barely enough room to get the old one out or the new one into place (I have done it twice before). Does anyone have any tips on improving access? also the filter is quite large- its longer than the one on my 1.6 scenic- could the shorter one be used? does anyone know the correct part number for the filter?

Thanks

p.s. I will of course be using 5-30 "C3" oil either Halfords BMW type or Mobil ESP

I put mine on the ramps to change the oil and the filter. It can be a bit tight, but once I had the filter loose enough to undo by hand I took my socket away and had the filter off.

My one is also a 1.9 dci FAP (2006) I used 5W-30 fully synthetic long life oil (1 year I believe?)
