    its easy if you have the use of a pit, the filter is at the rear of the engine halve way up!! move the locking clip to one side as you undo the filter not forgetting to attatch a pipe to the little outlet to empty the filter housing as you undo it..

    Speaking from experience, make sure you can undo the sump plug before attempting any of what is suggested. This way if you can't you can at least still drive the car

    Sump plug will be tight, get a bar on it if it won't move, but support the the torx/socket end of things with your free hand, and you will need to drop the engine shield, again support this from the front or it will drop and rip, and at £160 a go you don't want that to happen.
