  6. Well that oil filter is in a ridiculous location! Even with the filter pliers it took a good 5-10 mins of swearing and as expected got covered in oil.
    Replaced the gearbox oil but was surprised how clean the oil was that I drained.
    Now onto the fuel filter, fingers crossed I don’t snap any clips!
     
  7. Didn’t manage to do the fuel filter, had a quick look and the current filter and connections are filthy so I cleaned it up and then couldn’t figure out if the green clips need pulling up or pushing in? Was scared to snap them.
     
  8. Cleaned mine, for possibly the last time :tongueout:

  18. Was it easy removing the black stuff?
    I’ll be doing a full detail on my car this weekend hopefully.
     
  19. If you can remove the bumper it's not too bad

    Blade, remove the drls and ballasts then it unclips

    The middle bit just unclips,

    There is a lot of clips mind - god knows who designed it lol!
