We are sorry. Get this item as part of an Oil Change Kit. Earn cash as you shop! SAE 5W-30 (Mk II Models) Engine Oil Capacity 4.5 liters/4.7 quarts (Mk I Cooper) 4.8 liters/5.0 quarts (Mk I Cooper S 2005 and onward) 4.2 liters/4.4 quarts (Mk II models) Oil Drain Plug Torque 30 Nm/22 ft-lbs: Oil Filter Cover Torque 25 Nm/18 ft-lbs (all engines) For the gen 2 R56 (not your model but we might as well have everyone represented here) Oil Drain plug to oil pan - 22 ft-lb Cover to oil filter housing 18 ft-lb Though I’ve traditionally done the hand-tight and then just a bit more for the filter housing. }); Once the car is lifted, lay down a tarp underneath the transmission to keep the floor clean. Once the o-ring is in place, smear with some of the used oil that had accumulated in the oil filter housing to create a good seal when re-installing. .a-no-js
