Unscrew the oil filler cap and put it on the slam panel by the bonnet lock, it will remind you or anyone else that there is no oil in the engine.

Clean the surface to the housing, then smear clean oil over the new oil filters seal and screw in hand tight.

Replace the sump washer and put back the sump plug.

Fill up with 3.6 litres of Selenia StAR Pure Energy oil, screw the filler cap on,
