As milton says just jack up OSF, then take wheel off as easy to get to then.There is a plastic splash guard behind strut/coil spring which then folds under front bumper which can come off too, held in with with a few 10mm bolts and plastic pop fasteners.Once guard is off the oil filter is ever so easy to remove then stick your hand under the sump for the drain plug . Problem with it up on a ramp is you'll have to leave the wheel on which you really need to remove if you want an easy job of it.With the splash guard off check the state of your belts too .
Leafy Thank you for the sound advice.Shall follow your instructions Regards Barry

No. Tighten it up, but not too tight.
Check for a leak once the oil change is complete, and if required tighten the sump plug up again.

I assume you are replacing the sump plug washer?

If you have a plank cut it up into four sections line up front wheels with two sections of plank and put two glossy magazines on planks drive up slowly onto the planks choke back wheels front and back with bricks after first putting your hand brake on. Before turning off the the engine turn steering wheel to the left full on turn off engine this will give you better access to the drain plug and filter. Hope this helps :thumbs:
