Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

Its under a black metal shield that is held on by 3 nuts. Facing you when you open the bonnet, just below bonnet level. You will need a 27mm socket to undo the plastic filter housing which is below the metal shield.
The new filter just pushes home but be very careful how you locate the new rubber O ring
as it does NOT fit at the bottom of the plastic housing, but in a groove.
Its simple really,
The shield looks a bit superfluous to me......
Is it really any use T ? because without it the filter change would be a 30 second job..........
All done standing in front of the car too, full marks Fiat

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

I`m familiar with the engine filter, but not the surrounding kit in the Doblos engine bay.
On my Punto I use a flexible drive to remove those 3 nuts.

Just to add, (edit) On the Punto it can be eased out without removing anything.

What a pig of a job it is to change on the doblo there are 4 nuts on the sheaf over the oil filter ,all them are buried deep inside the engine bay and are very difficult to get to even with a flexi drive. I have no idea what the purpose of this metal cover is as the job would be a doddle without it.

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

I'm about to attempt to do an oil and filter change on my doblo 1.3 multijet. It looks a frigging daunting job. Firstly having trouble locating the oil filter and how the heck do I get at the drain plug ???
Why do they make it so difficult to carry out what should be a routine job.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Mark

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

oil filter as mentioned above

Best to use service ramp to get to sump plug & also remove that f*cking underguard!

Use correct oil.

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

Make sure you get the right filter.Ive just done our multijet panda and there seem to be two types;one with a spigot on one end and one with a hole straight through and some clips to hold it into the housing.Youll need a 27mm socket or box spanner and a 12mm hexagon drain plug key if its the same as the panda.Cant see what good the cover does.Daughters boyfriend who is a technician at a fiat van dealer reckons to leave them off.

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

from what I can see the metal shield protects the plastic filter cover from heat, I always refit them...customer has paid for it & will no doubt notice.

Re: Doblo 1.3 multijet oil filter

Well a big thank you to all. Did my oil and filter change without a problem.
A good socket set with a long extension made life alot easier and all in all I whipped the black metal cover off in under 10 mins. I also removed the black hose to give me more space.
As for the drainplug, I cheated there. Instead of removing the undershield I located roughly where the drainplug was and cut a 3 inch hole in the shield with a holesaw. Nice and neat and worked like a dream. It will make future oil changes much easier.
Thank you for the advice T and dobloseven
