  2. Turn off a drain stopper and merge oil.
  1. After oil plum, will wipe dry a drain stopper. Twirl a drain stopper and tighten it according to the moment. Inhaling moment: drain stopper of engine oil (a): 50 N • m (5.0 kg-m).
  1. Turn off the oil filter, using a key for oil filters (the special tool). Special tool: (A) 09915-47330 (for the G16 and J20 engine).

Before installation of the new oil filter oil a sealing ring. For this purpose use engine oil.

  1. Twist the new filter by hand till the moment while the sealing ring will not concern a landing surface.
  1. Tighten the filter on 3/4 turns from the moment of a contact with a landing surface, using a key for oil filters. Inhaling moment: oil filter (b): 14 N • m (1.4 kg-m) (standard).
