308 1.6 diesel, preparing to change oil located the oil filter and checked I need 27mm socket and just looked underneath to see where and what drain plug is. Can't see it because of plastic under engine covers, as I have not fully raised car can't see too much on which covers I will have to remove and just how they fixed, they look to interlock in places. I think it will be the large cover I will have to remove. Can see 4 10mm skt. head screws, are there more, maybe 2 more recessed towards the rear?
Do I have to remove any other covers which seem to be interlocked particularly at the front?
I was hoping to know what drain Plug is before I lift car up and secure safely so I had all tools to hand.

Just not many regular 308 owners I guess!

If its anything like the 307 it will be a pain. :mad:

You don't need anyone to tell you how to do something so simple. Remove the studs remove the tray open sump stud and let it drain for ten minutes. Remove filter to help the oil filter housing to drain too.

Not too sure on it being simple.
As I said I was wanting to see the filler plug to confirm it is a standard socket type. I did remove the 4 10mm socket screws but the large cover was still firmly held in place. As the car was not fully supported I was not going to go underneath to see if any further screws, thus my question were there anymore. Are there screws in the 2 deep recess's? Do I have to remove any others of the plastic covers in order to remove this large cover?
Thanks.

There are nuts in the recessed holes yes. The drain plug is 21mm.

Are these nuts+screws can be reachable without jacking up the car? In my 307, I was simply reaching the sump plug by stretching my arm without jacking up the car.
