How to change The Oil & Filter On A Fiat 500 1.2

There are two types of oil filter for this model depending on the year. Parts needed are oil filter 55230822 or 46544820 and K Pure Energy oil.

Undo the 12mm allen key sump plug,

and drain the oil into a suitable container.

Unscrew the old oil filter. Before fitting the new one clean the surface of the oil filter housing then smear clean engine oil over the seal of the new oil filter. Now refit the tapered sump plug.

Unscrew the oil filler cap,

and pour in 3.5 litres of the recommended engine oil. Screw the cap back on.

Start the engine briefly to circulate the oil.

Pull out the dip stick, wipe it, put it back then pull it out again and check the level of the oil. Repeat this at least once again and top up if necessary.
