    I've looked for you too Ray,i can't find a how 2,but the oil filter is down the back of the engine bay,and the sump bolt will be underneath the engine
    I've not done mine myself yet mate,as i put it in the dealers for a service when i bought it,so i couldn't tell you what you need to do it

    Its easy to do an oil change on the cdti 150. Jack the car up, remove the belly pan, remove the sump plug (13mm socket) i would get a new sump plug washer. Refit and tighten the plug once empty and then its onto the filter.
    Oil filter is located at the rear of the engine to the left next to the starter motor (plastic nutted cap can be seen on the picture below, to the right of the flywheel) remove the yellow sleeve on the bottom of the filter and when you loosen the threaded cap the oil will run from this outlet and into your container. Cant remember the exact size of the nut but defo need a 30mm+ socket to remove it. If you are replacing it with a genuine vx filter then once the cap is removed, give it a clean and replace the o ring located at the top of the threads on the plastic cap (new o ring supplied with filter) When refitting push the filter into the filter housing on the engine, give it a good push till it pushes home. Then screw the cap back on, refit the yellow sleeve, refit belly pan, fill with oil and job done!
    If you buy an aftermarket filter you click the filter into the threaded housing first before screwing it back on, hence why i mentioned if your going to use a genuine one.
    Hope that helps.

    10w-40 won't just kill your turbo unless you're driving in -50°C at 5000rpm
