    ~3 liters on every change. I would do it at least twice, if not three times 3 liters. Drain and fill are the same hole. It's a 2 piece draining screw: one is the screw itself, the other is the oil dipstick. Remove the screw first, it will drop ~1 liter. Remove the dipstick second, it will drop another ~2 liters.

    Plug the dipstick, fill oil exactly the quantity you removed, then put the screw in the dipstick.

    Drive at least 100 miles and redo operation at least once.

    That's it! Not a big/difficult thing.
