Sump plug torque setting

I've bought a genuine full service kit from Cox for my 1.6 diesel tourer and weather permitting will probably tackle this weekend

Does anyone know how tight the sump plug should be tightened to ?

I know it isn't likely to be that critical but would be nice to do it correctly if possible.

So will be changing the oil, oil filter, diesel filter, air filter and cabin filter.

Also is there any procedure to prime the diesel after the filter change ?

Any help welcomed !

I wouldnt worry about torquing it up, just do it up hand tight. Youll have an antislip washer in with the oil filter and the sump is thin metal so too tight and youll warp it.

Can't imagine that it will make much difference. Just read somewhere else it's 29 lbs/ft. My Ep3 is 33. They're all in a similar ball park

Is this your first attempt at servicing the 1.6? If it is you'll not be able to get the Oil Filter off with a conventional chain whip as there just isn't the room. You'll need one of the following.

Or

The correct size one of these, don't know if this is the correct size but you get what I mean.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/67mm-Oil-Fi...d=263409478938

Once you crack the Inspection plate off the bottom to do this, I'd recommend you dunk the 7 or so screws you take off to remove it in a bit of oil so it will make them come off easier on future services.

Good luck with the Fule Filter, heard it's a Pig to do.

I have already bought the same oil filter tool. I later found a post suggesting the Laser 3117 suitable for the 2.2 will also do the job but the generic one I now have should be OK.

I'll post back after I've done the job to see if I can pass on any tips

I'm pretty experienced with working on cars although this is the first time I'll have serviced the Honda as it's now out of warranty

Have tried the find details of how to prime the fuel pump after I've changed the filter, all I can find so far is it's under a plug under the passenger floor mat and there's a special tool (I vaguely recall a white plastic tool in the boot) to operate it. There's surprisingly little information on later Hondas online with little on the 1.6 engine which makes this forum all the more valuable.

Normally it is about 25lbft

The L13, R18 and N22 used 29lbft.
No real harm in doing a little less, just make sure it doesn't leak afterwards

I didn't realise that the tool for the 2.2 worked. I've got one from my previous motor. I used the 3 prong tool to get the filter off. Was a bit of Squeaky Bum time though as it tore the filter and was a bit tight to get off and here's me thinking, "What if I can't get it off"...

The post about the same tool being suitable for both 1.6 and 2.2 is below

Would be worth finding out for sure as I'm sure this information will be useful. I'm going to be using the universal one I bought so cant confirm.
