How to change my Octavia's oil filter?

I was going to give my automobile a service, but before I start, I was wondering is the oil filter hard to gain access to, as there are two pipes running above it; it's a 2011 Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI.

Any advice would be great

Hi Kevin,

The first piece of advice we'd give is that, if you're not experienced in changing many different types of oil filters, don't do it. There are several things that could go wrong and cause engine damage.

Many oil filters are best accessed from under the automobile. Be prepared for oil dripping down from it once you loosen it, even if you have already drained the engine oil...
