If you can't find the sump plug ......... protect your investment by paying someone to service your vehicle!

I read this post ... not much help.
We have changed the oil on several vehicles before, over many years and no trouble at all.
We have also done some pretty complex mechanical work in extremly isolated places and again had not a problem.
However this time we were actually wondering if the stone plate had to come of or not to access the sump plug.
Perhaps I didnt explain well enough and left myself open to assumptions!

OK, OK , dont get too carried away...I know it sounds dumb!
However, what I should have said was do we have to remove the plastic stone guard to access the plug.
And from what I have read it is good to change the oil every 7000kms in the DID pajero, isnt it? The mitsubishi services are every 15,000km.

No offence meant Lenni.

If you don't remove the stone guard oil will go everywhere when you remove the oil filter.

Just rember: oil is cheap, filters are cheap,

engines, worry free sleeps and peace of mind are priceless.

Good luck with the service.

If you really must---- then yes, remove the "bash" plate and all will be revealed.
