Exclamation change oil filter on Grande Punto Sport T-Jet 1.4 120 HP

has anyone ever changed the oil filter on a grande punto sport t-jet 1.4?
and i mean change it without having to remove half the parts or the engine.

if i understand correctly the filter is covered by too much plastic (cover box and cap).
am i right?
I was thinking maybe the easiest way would be to unscrew the bolt from the top and access the oil filter by getting under the car. anyone ever tried it?

here in Sweden service is way too expensive and i wanna start doing it by myself.

since i m not a mechanic, my "language" might not be clear, so please be patient and ask me if you need any clarification. thanks in advance.

i have attached a picture so that is can make it more clear...

I just use a suction hose after I've loosen the filter. As I find oil still sits in the filter housing. Annoying haha
