Seriously, if you can't be bothered to remove the cover, which incidentally probably leaks already..., then why bother to jack it up at all :-\

yes but its unplug 2 abs sensors, 2 x 18mm bolts, 9x 15mm bolts, get covered in oil, remove cover, clean up mating services, apply sticky sealant to hands, fit cover, torque up 2 x 18 mm bolts to 90nm, apply threadlock to 9 x 15mms and torque up to 60nm, replug abs sensors....

quite possibly it would leak afterwards unless i am scrupulous with the cleaning...

i think she should be grateful i am changing her 'oil for life', not expect an inspection of her private bits as well. or a new hole fitting.

Which is why the smaller 2.2 dti produces as torque as the 3.2... VE being 0.55 plus turbo vs 0.533  8)

Both covered in the maintenance guides... first item in the sticky list is the index...

For the sake of ten bolts, surely better to remove the cover... also gives the opportunity to inspect the mechanicals...

Once removed, you can file away the casing to a depth of about 4mm at the centre bottom bolt to act as a sump drain using the bolt as a sump plug :y

Fuel gauge is calibrated due to different shaped tanks... saloon tanks are an even depth whereas in estates the sender is effectively mounted below the top of the tank... ergo a saloon gauge in an estate will always under read, but vice versa and you run out of fuel at a 1/4 tank ::)

just read the maintenance guide on this.  i assume there is no drain plug hence the need to take the cover off.

can't be a***d with all that and getting covered in smelly hypiod, any reason why i shouldn't just suck out the oil through the filler with my trusty 12v engine oil change pump and refill? actually i'd top it up first so i know how much leaked out and to give it a flush.
