The oil filter on the K20 engine is located on the backside above the drivers side axle.
Using an oil filter wrench (if required) remove the old oil filter and install your new filter.
Note that oil will drain out from the filter itself and the filter hole on the engine.
Once oil has stopped draining from your vehicle jack it back up and carefully reinsert the sump bolt.
Note: Honda specify 39Nm for the drain bolt
Lower the vehicle back down and start to fill it up with the correct amount of oil. For the FN2 with the K20Z4 engine it is roughly 4.7 litres of oil.
Once the correct amount has been poured in, run the engine for a few minutes until the car is up to temperature. Then let it sit for a few minutes and check the oil level using the dip stick.
