    remove the front plastic cover on the engine...3 bolts along the back into the cam cover....then look down the front of the right hand side of the engine and you'll see a black cap with a hexagon moulded into it..the oil filter is attached to the underneath of that cap...

    well what a flippin nightmare. finaly found it (cheers GSI 3.2) then never had a socket big enough to fit over so round to the father inlaws to borrow a shifter spanner and still couldnt get it off, no room to leaver it.

    then it started raining again. so filled the bi*ch back up with some 5W-40 oil. 5 litres it took. greedy thing.

    nothing ever goes to plan.
