    Default Oil Filter CDTi 150

    Hi

    I'm about to do an oil & filter change on my 06 reg facelift 150, my first on this engine since I got the car 1 yr ago)

    I've got hold of everything but before I start dismantling on Sat, what size is the socket required to remove the filter housing cover on the 1.9CDTi 150 engine please?

    I've had various sizes quoted - 32, 34 & 36 mm so I'm confused & even a search on here was not completely clear with different sizes referred to. Were different sizes used at different times?

    Thanks

    Did you get it done then?

    Mine, as oil changes go, all went OK. The socket requirement on the small, compared to my previous 2.0 DTi B, oil filter housing was 32 mm. However, there was a lot of work just to get to it all, the cars don't seem to be designed for DIY on ramps servicing anymore. On mine, a facelift C 1.9CDTi 150 SRi estate, the smaller under-engine plate does not fully detach, again unlike the older B, but only hinged down which is not sufficient when on ramps. So I had to remove the entire underbody front tray - 17 screws - which added unecessary time. Still, should be easier next time since I know the removal procedure now. The best bit was the £20.00 I paid for 5l of genuine VX 5-30 fully synth oil, no more than what I used to pay for 10-40 semi synth for the B engine.

    You need a 32mm socket for the oil filter on the 1.9 cdti. Or if you have any old imperial size sockets you can use a 1 1/4" AF socket

    I wouldn't have thought it would be different for the estate, but my hatchback (pre-facelift admittedly) gave plenty of access to get the oil filter housing but just dropping the panel down...

    I did have a rather long spanner to get in there with though...

    Yes, there seem to be many suppliers of the socket required, e.g. here. This time, I used an open ender (as I used to use on the 'B') but will get one of these for next time so I can use the ratchet drive which will definitely be easier.

    With mine on ramps, front raised ~40cm above normal, the smaller quick release hinged panel did not drop enough to get the drain pan under. To drop it fully, the car would have to be raised much higher or on a lift/over a pit. Unlike the B I had previously where the smaller quick release panel was fully removable, on the facelift C, it is fixed at its front end and therefore only hinges down . Removing/refitting the entire tray added (for me) about an extra 20mins or so each way.
