How to change oil and oil filter on the Renault Modus 1.2

So I need to change engine oil and oil filter in my Renault Modus 1.2 16V.

Opening the hood there is no apparent oil filter and perhaps I should try to access it from underneath or perhaps take apart a few parts under the hood for easy access in the engine. Any ideas?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello fellow reno modus mugs yes I bought one last week even if you go onto YouTube for any information the most you will get is how to change a light bulb via taking the front off the car and taking out the wheel arches, the Renault forums are no different ,apparently you need a special tool to take the filter off and its a problem because there is little or no room , does your drivers door drop and clunk when you shut it ? That's considered normal ,just to get to the front strut you have to take off the bulkhead covers and the complete wiper assembly ,these cars are made for dealer only servicing with inflated prices ,one person was quoted £650 to change the cambelt and water pump ,had I have known this before I would never have bought one !
