You should at least fill the filter 3/4 full before installing. The oil flow through the filter goes to the turbo and then back to the engine. Filling the filter will eliminate a dry start for the turbo. Hope this helps (my $.02)

What will really make it easier is a Fumoto oil valve. No more oil all over your hands.

First time I changed the oil on the 04.5 it was a bit tougher than my 01 because you couldent get to the filter so easy, I since purchased a filter wrench that fits the fluted bottom of the filter, just use an extention on the ratchet and reach up there and twist it off easy now, Also another trick I always use is to wrap the filter with a plastic bag first so when you twist it off the oil will spill into the baggie, I have also purchased a drain plug from www.genosgarage.com like this so now all I have to do is to scew the hose fitting onto the plug and it drains out, just a tip if you get one of these the darn hose is a seperate order , its a great product and make my job alot funner, no mess either.

Cheers, Kevin

Whats really cool about this is I also orderd a drain valve for my wifes 04.5 and the screw on hose/drain attachment fits it too so I only need the one hose, I highly recommend a drain valve of some kind so a guy dont take a chance of strippin threads and stuff like that..................it happens alot more than what a person realizes.

Cheers, Kevin
