hi,,,you will require a 27mm socket for oil filter housing cover,,and a 8mm allen key for the sump nut.
oh and suitable oil disposal container.
so with them:
remove oil filler cap and diptick
loosen oil filter housing top
under vehicle remove sump plug and drain,then remove filter housing,replace filter,,refit sump plug,tighten housing and re-fill with oil(approx 3.5litres)
start and check oil.

Not sure if I'm actually using this correctly to post reply but I'll try again.
Thanks for your help.  Should be ok so long as I can actually remove the plastic nut on top of the filter housing!  Thanks for your help

I've got a similar question but mine is a 2003 1.6s Auto.  Anyone got pics of what needs to come off or a description of where and what to look for.  Internet has unfortunately not been very fruitful.  Had a very quick look at the engine to find where the sump plug is but failed and not quite sure if the filter is within a black dome shape thing sitting to the right if the engine block.  If it is, do I turn it using the molded bolt and what are those two tabs for?  So many questions for what seems a relatively simple job!!

Got limited tools too but can borrow (once I know what to ask for).  I've bought a new oil filter and have a dish to catch the oil - need to read up on what oil to buy.

As you can tell I'm not good with cars but need to learn and get stuck in.  

Question

Thanks

Yes its within the dome, and yes just a socket on to turn it.

Drain plug should be pretty visible on the sump.

Oil now changed...bought the much needed 27mm socket and extension bar for the oil filter housing cover so at least have those for next time.  Was a bit of a fiddle getting the old filter out though!!  Sump nut didn't have the 8mm allen key hole, well at least it wasn't hexagonal but square, however came off easily with wrench.

Thanks

Very Happy
