Car’s up in the air. I have to use this to catch the oil because we're ready to go. So we have to get the correct spanner. You're doing your home work shop, it may will be if you're buying this DVD. To catch the old engine oil, what you can use is plastic can that you would buy your new oil in or an empty gallon container, plastic one. Show you in a second, whiles its draining, one of this. Into one obviously. Cut the top right open, peel it off and you got an oil catcher. And when you put the new oil in the car, put your can that you cut open, back in the can. Alright, while that’s changing, draining. Let's have a few details out underneath. Exhaust pipe, there's a big long one piece, it’s this one, its right to the back. There's a bolt in the back. There's two bolts there that points downwards, that looks relatively to get on if you have a long extension. Unwind that, there will be a gasket in there. 30 mil bolt in the bracket, take your bracket off. And then this system, to the back, flexible joint there. That’s probably one of the first braces that we were look at the car. Comes all the way back to about as here, that’s another thing to check on the service as well. They held on to clips, these ones. Very simple, just push this through. There's clipped on the top, clips on top of the rubbers. And that is the first joint, and that looks like a 17 mil nut round a big clamp. Unwind that and basically hammer and chisel to knock, that just slides inside each other, but they do rust together and fuse themselves into one solid lump sometimes. So that is another common piece to change, not so much on a diesel, but on petrol they rot out a lot quicker. We got two rubbers on the back, clips on them. Pick the clips off, one, two. Knock that off, and that will come down. So that’s relatively easy system to change. Some of them are really complicated. Alright, oil filter. I couldn’t even see it from the top, but I can see it from underneath. But there's no way it’s going to be accessible from underneath, so I’ll drop the car and we’ll see what sort of position we have to contort ourselves into to undo it. Alright, that is the detail. For your information, this is the alternator. Because it’s a diesel, it’s got the vacuum pump on the back which supplies your power brakes. This is a supply pipe, because your oil will lubricate, this is the supply pipe from the block, which are the bolts up there. So if you got an oil leaking around here, that’s a little bit wet, little bit damp this one, but there's nothing dripping off from it. So that will do for now. And union on the back there, that’s a 13 mil nut. And an 11 mil nut on this end, and that’s one flexible pipe. That's the return pipe for it which is another place you can have an oil leak. So they all comes in through there, out through that. And the connection on the top, if you can see that, that connection is a feed for the vacuum. So if you're changing the alternator, you will undo, 1, 2, 3 screws that hold the vacuum pump on. Pull it off, it may well leak oil when it comes off. So be prepared for that. And then you got a big bolt through the bottom, there's the nut and there's the nut. And the other bracket is on top which we’ll have a look at from the wheel is off, when I got the wheel off, you get the camera right in there and have a look and you're going to find out soon about timing belts and stuff. Well, I finished draining the oil off and we're going to fish for the oil filter from the top. Back in a moment. Alright, I couldn’t see the oil filter from the top, but I found it. It’s down here. Screws on from the side, it’s a nice tiny little unit. And occasionally they can be extremely, extremely hard to get off because their rubber goes hard, gets cooked, and acts as a glue basically. So I haven't actually loosened this one, it so happens, that’s good. So it’s not necessary to over tighten it. Because it’s a side facing oil filter, it sits like that, there is probably every chance that it will, I can't really put my hands around it. So stick your finger in the hole, pull it out. Off it out to your new one, make sure it’s right, diameter, thread, rubber seals. There's only one rubber seal on this, it’s on the outside. So that looks good. There's a few drips of oil coming off, nothing excessive. So that’s alright. Rub a bit of oil on the, you can use the old engine oil, a bit around the seal to help you crush it up. That's a bit tight. My hands are the size of a bunch of bananas, but if you know someone with hands that big and is too tight, you might get one to undo it for you. Otherwise you have to use one of those strappy things a big pair of pump pliers to get a grip around it. All you can smash a screwdriver through if you want to make a real mess. Okay, nice and tight by hand. That’s that. Okay. Oil filter done. See, get a good idea of its position. Okay.
