    Default Oil filter location?

    Easy question for those that know - where is it . I guess you can't get to it from the top as I can't see any sign of it.

    A pic would be even better .

    Yep, between Wycombe and Marlow.

    I've got one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADJUSTABLE...item27c0b51135 but knowing my luck, I'll need something else.
