Default Draining Oil

Hi,

This seems like a weird question, but I want to remove some Oil from my Eos...

I have heard that the oil drain plug is at the back drivers side of the engine.

Assuming this is true, do you have to take the metal cover off to get to it? If so, what is the best way to get this off and can it be done on the ground or will it need to be jacked up?

Any help or even photos would be wonderful!

Thanks

Simon

In addition, I have now read that you have to change the drain plug if you losten it to let some oil out! That is rediculous... I have done that in loads of cars, losten so some comes out clowly and then tighten again!

Anyone tried this or have any thoughts... Gonna buy some of those Ramps from Halfords so I can get the car higher up to do this oil drain!

Thanks
