Does anyone know where the Oil Filter is located on the FN2? Is it easy to get to? All I need to do is mark it with a permanent marker (Long story) but want to make sure the dealer changes it.

Do I have to take anything off to get to it.... My car is pretty low, so can only jack it so far.... Cant be dealing with taking off the floor protector to get to it...??

Thanks in Advance, photo's would be amazing??

Yes its here in my attached pic, its blue

In my pic my car is on a four post lift, engine tray is off and front subframe is off (You dont need to take that off).

its below the exhaust section of the engine towards the drivers side

Im just thinking about access and how far you can get the car up.

I imagine coming in from the top or underneath is equally painful

Nice thought, although wanted to be a little more discreet then that.

Do it from underneath on axle stands, not too difficult really.

Make sure you get all the 10mm bolts and plastic pop studs out before you yank the undertray off lol, there are two in each front wheel arch holding it on.

Take the O/S wheel off and you will be able to get into it from there. Would be a ball ache to do it from the top.
