Extracting engine oil

  • Route the suction probe of the oil removal device through the oil level measuring tube and siphon the engine oil.

NOTICE Use a suction probe with the largest possible diameter! Insert the suction probe no further than to the point where you feel the first resistance. The tip can otherwise be deflected at the bottom in the oil basin; in this case a large amount of oil will remain in the engine.

Follow the operating instructions of the suction device.

Drain the oil through the drain plug

  • Remove noise insulation under the engine.
  • In vehicles with plastic oil sump: unscrew drain plug with the assembly tool - T10549- .
  • In vehicles with sheet metal oil sump: unscrew drain plug with captive seal ring.
  • Allow engine oil to drain out.

NOTICE After the engine oil has been drained, the plug must always be renewed. This prevents leaks.

Please observe requirements for disposal.

  • Moisten O-ring of the new drain plug with engine oil.
  • In vehicles with plastic oil sump: tighten new drain plug with the assembly tool - T10549- up to stop.
