    If you look towards the front of the car, next to the sump, it looks like the bottom of a coke bottle, black plastic with a 36mm socket shape in the plastic.

    Mine has a screw-off bottom (for draining the housing?), and the whole thing unscrews via the nut-shaped bottom to expose the filter.

    Looks like this:

    Hope this helps. Did mine last week ;)
