    Oil and Filter Change Astra H CDTI

    How difficult is this and can it be done with a jack?

    Where does it drain from?

    I have the oil and filter but havent done this before and want to know if its possible to do on my own

    Help appreciated

    if its the same as a vectra C then the filter is underneath at the back of the engine along with the sump plug.

    the filter housing can be a pain to undo but not that bad.
    should manage on a couple of axle stands rather than a jack for saftey

    The oil filter is a total, total bitch, as it's on the back of the engine above the exhaust downpipe. It's an easy job if you have ramps.
