: : Where is the oil filter?
: It's in the engine compartment just to the left of the power steering reservoir as you face the front of the car. It's not a metal cannister-type filter. The element is available from BMW dealers and includes a new O-ring for the filter housing and a washer for the drain plug.
: Is it easy to change?
: Very. Just unscrew the top of the housing and lift the housing with the old filter attached
: (have something ready to catch the drips). Replace with the new filter and O-ring, replace the cap and torque it to 25 NM.
