Can the oil and oil filter be changed by jacking the car up under the passenger front tire and crawling under the car? Do you have to remove the metal pan?

The holes don't line up on my Tdi but if you are lazy and doing regular DIY servicing, you can buy suction tools for the dipstick fairly cheap.

I just use a couple of wheel ramps I bought from Harbor Freight. Drive up, more secure than jack I think, take pan off, go to town. Not that difficult to take the pan off.

If you have an EOS Sport or lowered suspension, the cheap DIY ramps are too short and steep so will grind off the front bumper as you drive up! Some aren't even wide enough for larger tire sizes.
