The oil filter is located under the exhaust manifold in a very difficult place.
I've tried from above and below but can't get a hold of it.
Also where is the sump plug located ?
Thanks.

    Take it to a lube shop and have the oil and filter changed!

    Thanks for your reply. I forgot to mention that I'm in Australia but I'll try to find the oil filter pliers over here. The main problem is getting access to the filter. I'll take the skid plate off and see if there is a chance from there. I've tried both my oil filter wrenches but I can't get near the filter.
    I appreciate your input.
