63 J11? 1.5 oil & filter change help

Post by Bp2411 » Mon Jul 19, 2021 7:30 pm

Hello everyone, first time posting, just signed up as my cousin has asked me to change the oil & filter on her 63 plate Qashqai which I'm assuming is a J11? It's a 1.5 diesel, my question is, judging from some research I need a few tools I don't own, am I right in thinking the sump plug is an 8mm square drive bit? Also what's recommended for the filter, is there a universal tool I can buy or do I need the specific 65 / 67mm tool?

Thanks in advance everyone!

Welcome to this forum.

It could be a late J10:

or a J11:

I think it's a late J10, I didn't actually look at the front of it, I went to scan it for faults and it was parked facing a wall but I took a photo of the rear plate and it looks like a J10.

J10 looks a lot easier, no 8mm square drive sump plug just a 19mm socket but do I need the 65/67-14f filter socket?

if the last owner hasn`t over done it with the oil filter you maybe able to unscrew it by hand, if not just get a oil filter removal tool, not expensive normally less than £15. it will take you longer to remove all the trim clips from the under tray and fit them back on :roll: oil filter is just at the front of the engine near the radiator. you may aswell change the air filter while you have the bonnet up it`s a 30sec job ;)

I did mention air & pollen filter too but she just wants oil & filter done, I'll have a look for an oil filter removal tool now.

Yes - there's a debate about whether the initial J11 is the J11 or the J11A - sources vary.

A bit like Queen Elizabeth and Queen Elizabeth II :)

Well this is getting confusing now 😂 I was hoping it was this



No 8mm square sump plug & easy to access oil filter

I can't find anything on J11a, is that the same as the J11, 8mm square and awkward oil filter.

This engine has a DPF so will need 5W-30 C4 low SAPS fully synthetic oil....don't trust websites like Halfruads as they give the wrong spec oil!
