Hi, need to change oil on galaxy 2005 1.9 tdi, need to buy oil filter remover tool, don't know what size i need, they have one in semifords 76mm, not sure if it's right, thanks!

It 'SHOULD' be a 32mm socket on the top, but I have seen various that have no socket on, which a good old fashioned strap should help.

Good morning, my lovelies!

Now then. Some have a 32 mm socket on the top. Other's don't. If yours is one of the others, which I suspect it may well be, then what you need my friend is one of these:

74mm, 14 Flute. 76mm will work too but these fit very nicely.

And remember to torque it up to 25Nm precisely and keep a little record in a notebook of the works you have done.

Don't go forgetting to change those o-rings either now will you! Yeah!
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all. Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
