OIL FILTER REPLACEMENT


BHE011114300W01

Warning
• Remove and install all parts when the engine is cold, otherwise they can cause severe burns or serious injury.
• Continuous exposure to USED engine oil has caused skin cancer in laboratory mice. Protect your skin by washing with soap and water immediately after working with engine oil.
Caution
• When removing the oil filter, cover up the surrounding area with cloth to prevent oil in the filter from spilling on other parts.
• In case you spill the engine oil on the exhaust system, wipe it off completely. If you fail to wipe the spilled engine oil, it will produce fumes because of the heat.
Note
• Since two types of the oil filters have been adopted, make sure to choose the appropriate procedure according to the oil filter manufacturer (Tokyo Roki or Denso) indicated on the label of the filter.
