    lift and support ther car, remove sump plug and drain oil..loosen filter and catch oil that drains..fully remove filter.

    refit sump plug with new seal..smear oil seal on new filter with clean oil and screw back on to full hand tight..

    refill car with oil, capacity in handbook..

    start car and check for leaks..

    nope..VX swapped over in the late 90's...

    my V6 is torx, but the wife's 2.2 is a hex head, as is my old mans CDTi 150..
