    Put the cleaned oil drain plug with the new crush washer back into the engine block and torque it to 28Nm (20.6 ft-lbs)

    Draining the Oil Tank

    Here is one of the diversions from the BMW standard process.

    I used a vacuum extractor device to drain the oil tank, instead of the provided (and slow) gravity drain

    To gain full access of the oil tank to be evacuated with the vacuum extrator I need to remove the cover/dipstick and the inner screen

    Insert the extraction device tube into the oil tank - pump up to develop vacuum

    Extraction results - the green arrow shows the amount of oil extracted.

    Approximately 2L which is the content of the oil tank

    Removing the Oil Filter

    Here is the second deviation from the standard BMW process.

    While BMW requires you to remove the bracket shown below, I did not do that because there are two oil filters that can be used.

    The "short" one p/n 11 42 7 673 541 does not require you to remove the bracket (that is the one shown)

    The "long" one p/n 11 42 7 721 779 does require, and what I did was just to loosen the three bolts enough to gain enough space to spin on the filter, will need to do the same when you remove it

    For reference - the 3 T45 bolts to remove are shown*

    If you do need to remove/loosen them you will also need a 13mm wrench tha holds the bolts in place on the back side.

    Removing the filter - I use a 17mm open end wrench to spin off the filter with the wrench.

    Shop Tip - I placed some aluminum foil to guide the waste oil that will drain out of the filter to the drain pan instead of onto the exhaust pipes.

    Once the majority of the oil has come out of the filter, remove the filter and clean off the oil on the mounting area for the new filter.

    Shop Tip - to facilitate the removal of the filter lifting the it up is better than trying to get it to drop down and out. Also on installation of the new filter it drops down and in

    Please note from the image below that the rubber o-ring from the original filter stayed stuck on the engine block.

    Remove the O ring (if stuck on the engine casing) and after wiping the area clean, spin on the new filter

    The torque required is 11 Nm (8.1 ft-lbs) - I just put it on hand tight

    Filling the Oil (3 Stages)

    At this point the engine block has been drained, the oil tank has been drained and the oil filter has been removed and replaced.

    The refilling process is done in 3 stages:

    Stage 1 brings the oil tank to register full on the dip stick - Don't forget to put the screen back in if you used an extraction device

    Stage 2 fills the engine by turning on the motor and running it for 20 seconds

    Stage 3 completes the fill by putting in the rest of the recommended oil amount then going for a short test ride and checking the oil level and adding additional oil (if needed) to bring the level to recommended requirement.

    Pour in some oil and then check the level.

    Do Not screw in the dip stick measure with the threads disengaged
