    Default Oil Filter Socket Size

    Does anyone have any idea what size socket I need for the oil filter on a SRi 2.2 DTi 2003 model. Just bought a 32mm one and its too small.

    Kindest regards
    Paul

    Thank you John

    I also wondered about the timing chain fitted to this car and what its lifetime is. Is it the lifetime of the engine?
    Are there any other belts I need to change regularly?

    Kindest regards
    Paul

    The chain should be inspected at 100k.

    Aux belt should be inspected and changed if there are any cracks/deformities. The tensioner for the aux belt may also need changed as it is oil filled and seizes
