#1

Where is the filter located? The owners manual doesn’t say.


#2

Seriously?
Have you opened the hood?


#3

Have you looked on the bottom of the motor…hidden by splash guard?


#4

The picture I saw showed the black plastic canister (small) under the engine, not far from the exhaust manifold. It is harder to find, now that it’s not a spin-on.


#5

Detailed instructions on how to change your filter …used google…

#6

The instructions do not mention any gasket between the filter housing and engine block. There must be one, perhaps hidden in a groove like the old '55 Chevy cartridge filters…Returning to these messy filters will reduce DIY oil changes to almost zero…


#7

PAY the 25 dollars and have it done for you.


#8

It’s a cartridge style just like so many european cars and is located on the passenger side, rear, bottom of the engine. There is a rubber o-ring that goes around the cap, that’s it. The cap can be a pain to get off and is not difficult to break so be careful.


#9

I bet there will be a spin-on adapter plate available in short order…
