    Question sump plug location

    hello, this is my first time on this site, i hope it bears fruit.
    I have a 2005 1.7cdti sri and I thought I might do its oil change myself this time. Can anyone tell me where the sump plug is and what kind of tool I need to undo it. I have had a quick look but cant spot it.
