Following the issues covered elsewhere on this forum users might find this increasingly more helpful and save themselves money at the stealers.

Thanks - an interesting video - very good of you to take the trouble. Is the filter like this one?

I notice you found a 0w/30 oil but it was ACEA C2 rather than C1 as C1 seems impossible to find except as 5W/30.

Filter part number is spot on! Sadly I mistakenly edited out how I unclipped and the pushed the new filter cartridges in - sorry!

TBH the oil us quoted as meeting the JLR spec so I went for it. I have to say if you put a drop between your fingers and tub them together it feels really really slick (unlike any other oil I have ever used), n fact a bit like butter for slipperiness!

Hopefully you will see it's an easy job to change it yourself if you can't be bothered to go to the dealer every few months and/or LR decide not to give you a free change.

Given that the problem is diesel dilution of the oil, I wonder why the need to change the filter? Surely all you need to do is let out the old oil (and diesel) and pour in the new? Then change the filter as usual at main service. Am I missing something?

Probably if first change, it would remove wear particles collected in the filter?
I'd just suck it out the top with a pump for an interim and let the dealer do the full drain afterwards. Plenty of suction pumps on Amazon.

1/2 price too :-)

Very useful post thanks - as were the videos of the towbar removal and fitting!

One question.

How does the ECU know the oil has been changed - any reset procedure to tell it to reset counters etc?

Thanks

The way to reset has also been posted on a video as a sticky, a search should find that information

Thanks for the positive comments. I think if you can show how simple something is to do on a video then it gives people the confidence to try. I was inspired to change the clutch and dual mass flywheel via a YouTube video as it brought to life the Haynes manual.

This link gives the spec details for the oil: http://www.extranetpli.eu.petronas.com/ ... ec_ENG.pdf as you can see it meets the JLR spec.
