    Back side of sump (facing the bulkhead) in the middle of it. If you need to ask that are you sure you should be doing an oil and filter change as changing the oil filter is a right pig/pain to do?

    If you don't know where the sump plug is then you probably don't know what size it is. So there is noway you could of started the job ensuring you have the correct tools to finish it.

    Put the bottom cover back on, go inside and search the very big very detailed "how to" section on this forum.

    make sure you use a good quality six sided socket. Sump plugs are made of toffee.

    Found it in the end, deffo needs putting on the ramp as the previous owner has mangled it to bits, looks like he's even hammered grooves into it and got it off with a flat head screw driver! Oh well looks like an expert will have to sort it out in the morning!! One less beer for me at the weekend but rather that then a Car on my head, last time I herd that's doesn't go down well :-p
