    Default Sump bolt 2.2 DTi. Doing Oil change.

    Can anybody help me with a couple of questions as I'm changing my oil and filter at the weekend?

    1. Size of sump bolt. Is it recessed requiring a socket or will an adjustable spanner do the job?

    2. Is the sump bolt accessable without removing the plastic engine undertray?


    I'm using Valvoline SynPower fully synthetic 5W-40 oil. I've used this on my cars in the past and have had no problems. Its certified for VAG/BMW/Merc and Opel longlife service intervals so the 10k miles I do between changes should be no problem.

    Apologies for this thread being posted in the wrong section at first.

    Thanks.

    Ross.

    Hi Ross
    1. use a Torx T45 to remove the sump plug
    2. you DO need to remove that silly plate thingy
    3. the oilfilter cartridge cap needs a 36mm socket to get it off
    HTH mate

    Support the tray, it splits if you dont, hth.


    Oh and expect resistance from the sump bung, shock treatment is the most reliable method.
