Oil Filter Change


Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 petrol Yaris. I need to change the Oil filter since there is a leak at the seal. Do I need to drain the Oil first or can I just unscrew it and fit another. Stupid question I know since I ususaly do both at once but the less time I have to spend under the car in the freezing weather, the better!

thanks

No need to drain the Oil, just change the filter. Smear the seal with Oil before fitting. You will need to top up with Oil as you will lose the Oil in the filter.
