    Access from underneath .. its one of the bottom hoses off the rotary distributer .. get it up on some sleepers to be safe .. dont jack it up and take a risk ! you cant trust a hydraulic hose ..

    Oil is AWS 32 grade

    4 x 13 mm bolts for the plate .. bit tight for space IIRC .. 10W30/40 for engine just the usual .. L3's arent too fussy AFAIAA

    I usually suggest using coloured bag ties to avoid that .. its amazing how many combinations of six hoses there are .. no need to drain oil its always under pressure so no dirt should have got in, just top it up to half way up the window under te seat with all rams at mid stroke.

    If you are worried about dirt, theres a spin on filter under the seat wouldnt do any harm in changing
