    1.9 TD oil

    10/40 ok?
    trouble is I don't know what's in there but I suspect nothing outlandish.

    Also can the oil be drained and filter swapped on wheel ramps? Crawling under is no worry.
    Don't know where to drain plug is exactly and can't get to look at the moment.

    yep - any old turbo diesel specced stuff will do.

    can be done without ramps or a jack - on standard suspension.

    drop the under tray and it's very accessible - unlike the 2.5 which was designed by a moron.

    Yes. Whilst on that subject. Is it possible to remove the oil filter without covering my face in spent oil? I've changed it five times and still can't work it out

    Ta.
    Just found that I have been given the wrong oil pressure switch. Box number says brown. Inside is black. Ah well

    Switch pressure should be stamped into the metal body of the switch in BAR - just check they are the same

    If only. The black replacement just says 03/18 which I assumed was a manufacture date and in the plastic is PA6GF30<

    Get it on axle stands or ramps, undertray off if you have one and the jobs no bother. 10/40 or 15/40 fine in those.

    . Ta . Got some 10/40 to go in. Handily had 25 litres from the oil bottling plant in the woods next to me before they closed down.
