I Want To Change The Oil On My 2000 Sri Vectra Although I Am A Servicing Virgin On This Car!!

Can Anyone Confirm Where The Oil Filter Is And The Drain Plug? I Think I Have Located The Drain Plug....is It On The Bottom Of The Sump And Needs What I Would Call A Star (*) Screw Driver To Remove?

If Not Can Anyone Help As To Their Location And Tools Required. I Have A Haynes Manual But Its Crap To Say The Least!

Sump plug needs a torx bit (size T45) to undo it.

Not entirely sure, but I *think* it's a cartridge filter on yours, rather than the traditional canister type.

yes but it's up the top of the engine at the front pionting down. it's black you undo and just put a new element in there. do this before you drain as the oil will drain into the sump.
