            easy mate. Get your car on level ground, let the engine run for a few minutes to warm the oil up.

            Turn off engine, undo filler cap, remove dipstick, remove sump plug and remove filter.
            Then in good old fashioned haynes manual instruction, do the opposite to the above to fit everything back on
            Easy, will take 15 min at most.
            Whats next?!?!?

              The cost of 5ltrs of oil and if you take it to a garage don't pay anymore than 1hrs labour.

              .....they walk around like everyone else
              .....they don't even know they're dumb

                the garage near me will do it for £20 if you get oil an filter
                it takes me 5 mins work for a oil change but i like to leave it 15 mins for oil to drain out

                  i know how to undo the oil cap on top of the engine and remove the dip stick but where is the sump plug? do you just put a bucket underneath the sump then? same principle as draining the coolant? i can do that

                        Buy the parts from VX parts desk and then take it to a garage, preferably a mechanic you know and they are robbing you if they charge more than £20. you should have change from £50 for the lot.

                            if you dont know where the sump plug is i think the best advise would be to get some help from someone who knows what they are doing, that way you will be able to do it yourself next time. Better safe than sorry.
