Just done an oil and filter change on our Peugeot 108 (1.0) engine. Pleased to report as quick and easy as doing our 107, so didn't take long. The oil filter was bit tight, think Arnold Schwarznegger had put it on, but it gave in eventually. Used some Millers 5w/30 fully synthetic oil, it peugeot/citroen spec, so should be ok.

I find mine also tight, although l change it yearly. I always removed it from the side after removing the near side wheel. I read on here that it would be easier to do it from under from the front of the car.
This time l will try it and see how it goes. How do you remove yours

I do mine from the front, raise the car suspension slightly to get under. This first time done our 108, so assume dealer rammed it on when they serviced it last year. I service our 107 every year and its oil filter comes off easy compared to today's arm wrestle!

I"m hoping it comes off much easier this weekend. Since l last year l have bought the strap type
to remove it. Might also make it easier.

Nice one, hope you get some nice weather as well, I got strap type used for many years and with my socket set it been fairly easy removal on various cars over the years, but it struggled couple times like yesterday, but i reckon filters were 'wrench tightened' not hand tight like I do.

I just got an oil/filter change at ATS. It was £50 and they used Mobil 1 esp 5w30. Car is running smooth.

As long as it's a recommended oil that price don't seem bad, must not forget to check the level though just in Casey
