    just take the engine cover off... as said above its 3 screws holding it on... then you will see it beside and slightly behind the dipstick...

    if you want to get it off you will need the required tool for the job... you wont be able to just twist it off... its impossible

    Remove engine cover, black round cap, undo with strap wrench, take note of which way round oil filter is, replace.

    Why are the older TDi covers silver and the new ones black
    is it a case of the black ones being cheaper to make ?
