    Very easy to do, the filter is at the back of the engine and accessed by the access flap on the splash tray, just need a 32mm (iirc) socket to get that off.

    2 seals in the filter box? Just put on one new one, thats all I did and its been fine.

    If you have access to wheel ramps or axel stands it makes life easier, or even a pit!

    You can take the splash tray off or you can just unscrew the access flap - you'll see the tray is held on with torx screws and the flap is just a phillips driver.

    Hi,yes 32 mm is correct,there are two seals on the housing so best to renew them both as you have the housing off.

    The drain plug is a 13mm and sometimes is very tight so make sure to have a good position on it before you give it some!!

    If you look on the filter housing at the back of the engine you will notice a little'spout',if you put some garden hose on it,loosen the filter until oil starts to come out then it will save you covering the down pipe with oil.
    When it stops pull out the housing and filter.

    The vauxhall stated oil amount is 4.3 litres...hope this helps.
