Quite new to the T5 scene but picked myself up a nice 57 plate recently and eager to start doing a few things. Started with a oil and filter change but cant undo the nut on top of the filter unbelivebly tight. I am asuming its anti clockwise to undo? Is this normal to be so tight. Any of you guys shed any light . Thanks:)

Erinsdad,

My 2007 1.9 (85) was exactly the same. As previous, use hexagonal socket - i think 24mm and ratchet, mine took a few taps with my hand and i had to stand on ladder to get decent purchase!

Once you get it off, i was advised to rub some oil around the rubber seal to ensure it comes off easily next time!

Good luck:)

Cheers for the advice fellas, got it sorted sat morn. Managed to undo it when engine was cooler i think this helped aswell. Got the correct size hex socket 32mm if anyone needs to borrow it in cardiff area. Saved myself a garage bill. T:
