    Just done mine today. Filter housing off and filter just came out. The old one was really black.
    I followed all the advice on here and it wasn't that bad. I also used a siphon pump to extract the old oil, much easier than taking the sump plug out!

    Warm the engine up first you can use a strap wrench to undo the housinghttp://www.google.co.uk/products/cat...ed=0CFkQ8wIwAQ
    a 32mm socket or try to turn it by hand with some work gloves on.

    Have a look at this also

    Right lads, complete novice here but times are tight - where exactly is the oil filter? have car up on ramps but still cannot see where filter is - have checked videos on you tube but of no help, maybe I'm blind but what side and where exactly under the car should I be looking?

    At the back of the engine right above the exhaust, its black plastic at an angle. 32mm hex end on it. Says in manuals to undo from bottom but I reach over and undo it from the top. Cant get enough movement on ratchet.

    Oil always runs onto exhaust.

    Always a garage job for me, oil goes everywhere with the 150 as its a pig to get to and upside down, the £10-20 it costs at garage offsets the cleaning products I then have to use on drive
