    Does the car have the 3 cylinder engine?
    Anyway - spark plugs between 25 and 30 Nm, the sump plug 35 Nm.......just nipped up plus a little more!
    If the engine has the paper filter below the black plastic cap then tighten the cap fully by hand and then the tiniest bit more :whistle: sorry to be a bit vague on that one but that's how its done! Only use a big hexagon socket on the filter cap.
    The coil packs (on the end of each plug) can be very carefully pulled clear by hand, but I believe a forked tool is available. Basically the pack is pulled directly off the plug without bending anything. The plugs are well recessed and best dealt with with a 3/8" drive ratchet and extension. I use a magnetic plug socket which is very useful in these situations.

    Couldn't you have chosen some other phrases so as not to remind us that August inexorably gives way to September, then October etc ...?
