    Right hand side of the engine looking forward, it's a torx bolt at the bottom of the sump but screwed in on the back horizontally...

    I have a cdti and it wasn't a torx bolt on mine, just a normal hex bolt, 13mm if I'm correct. You'll need a new one probably as they are tight and you end up chiselling them off.

    I might be lying then, but I'm sure mine was... Might be my old Vec B I'm thinking of, but I remember once getting it up on the ramp to change it, then findign out it was a Torx. Back to Halfords I went...

    So long ago in fact you might be right...

    Car needs to be jacked up high or preferably on ramps to allow the undershield door to hinge down far enough so you can get a bowl underneath to catch the oil

    Its ok couldnt find it and its in at the garage first thing.

    Sods law im going on holiday 2moz and doing a 300 mile journey so checked oil level, topped up but just a LITTLE too much! in fact about 3 times too much! dont ask why, think i just got happy.

    But luckily we know the person at the garage so he got me in first thing.

    Thanks for your help though
