    Default Oil filter change on a 3.0 cdti

    just thinking about servicing the signum and got the car over the pit at work to have a look and saw that the oil filter housing has a drain plug in it and that its going to need a special tool to remover the housing cover

    just found one on the internet on the laser website

    http://www.lasertools.co.uk/item.aspx?cat=375&item=3892

    OMG £28 for a tool i will probably use twice at the most

    how annoying as the vw/porsche/audi etc oil filter cup tool is £6 in halfrauds !!!!!!

    i was going to do mine as i have done the air fuel and pollen filters this weekend, but need to use the pit at work to do the oil,
    i havnt even looked under there yet, and just assumed it would be some sort of socket.
    would a oil filter removal tool not get it off, not ideal but should work?

    Out of interest how much would somewhere charge to change the oil and filter if you supplied all the parts?

    maybe cheaper than the part you need?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
