    Hi all, im going to attempt a oil and filter change in my 2008 1.4 fusion, seems simple enough.

    My question is when i look for filters theres differant sizes available, cant find the correct size in the manuals i have?

    Can anyone help me out as i would like to have it all bought, oil and filter ready to go straight away once ive drained the oil.

    Thanks in advance

    Gary

    A motor factor will likely type in your rereg and that will tell them which filter to supply. Same with a main dealer.

    Go to a motor factor armed with your registration number, Gary.....they'll fix you up with the right one.
    I guess the car has the Diesel engine?
    When you remove the old filter, compare like with like....if it's not the correct size it won't fit anyway.

    Cheers guys, ive been on euro car parts and halford and put my reg in but get 2 differant size options.

    Guess ill just have to take the old one off then go get one.

    Also is it easy enough to do with out putting the car on ramps? Only have the jack it came with!

    You'd never get me under a car with just the standard Jack, or any jack for that matter, axle stands are a must.
