    the oil filter is on the front of the block, just down by the exhaust pipe..in between the pipe and the gearbox...

    the drain plug will be on the lowest part of the engine...so look on the bottom of the sump, you'll find it..

    Changed the oil on my 1.8 at the weekend, watch your hand on the cat when you change the filter
    The plug is right at the bottom of the oil pan, make sure you get the o-ring seal for it when you get your parts.
