Hi folk, I have just purchased a 2002 Freelander and I am trying to find where is the oil filter on the engine. Can some good soul please tell me ?

Here in the states i don't think we will ever see a diesel freelander :D

Seriously if you lye on your back underneath the car you should be able to see it.

The oil filter is on top of the engine and it is not a spin on oil filter - you need to remove the top engine cover. The oil filter is a large black thing about 3" across - it has a hexegon moulded into the top - it looks like it is next to the dipstick - I cannot tell what side of the engine is on (I don't have a TD4) - the picture I have indicates it might be on the front left side of the engine.

Hope this helps

Thanks garrycol, I had purchased a Ryco oil filter that was listed under td4 and it was a spin on type. I had looked at the one you discribed and thought it was something else. Shout you a beer next time i am in Canberra.

Regards LenV

If it was a Ryco 587 it fits my L series Diesel Freelander (XEDI) which does screw in under the engine. Many people think diesel freelanders are all TD4s therefore any diesel listing will fit.

Good luck with it
