You can do it without ramps. Just go under on your back while it is still on the wheels.

As above :thumbs:

However, if its a tight squeeze and you just want to change the engine oil and filter then jack up the osf, put an axle stand in for safety, remove the osf wheel and you will find access is easy.

Best regards
Milton :biggrin:

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 .

You can get a bit more space under it, if you can drive the front wheels on to a pavement and lie in the gutter. The oil drain plug is at the back of the sump, so it drains a bit better when the nose is higher up anyway. As has been said, the filter is very easy.
