Thank you. Do you have a link to a good DIY on the bumper removal?

I know this is an old post but my question is the drain plug, it looks like a #8 allen plug on bottom of pan. I don t know what you are saying about it being on the bottom of the sump? Please explain.

THANKS, You got a 997.2? If so did you just use a 36mm socket on the center plug of the oil canister top?

Yes as i already had the socket for my m5. Be sure to put a rag under the housing and wait a few minsfor the oil to drain before removal.

Yes, your oil filter will be gotten from the top under the hood instead of under the car.It s the big black cap on the right side of engine (36MM). Look at the filter when you buy the new one and you ll will see it comes with a rubber ring to also be replaced on the cap. I think once you do it once this top filter is easier. With the right drain pans the car can stay on the ground. If I remember, the drain plug is a #8 allen. Do the oil filter cap first in case you can t get it off,,, before you drain the oil and then realize that.
