I used 5W 30 but only because it was on offer at Halfords, 5W 40 should be fine. 4.8 litres is what the book says for my 1.6 but I used 4 and then monitored it and put it a bit more in a couple of weeks later. Cheapo Halfords filter was good for the job and a square plug tool, although I have seen people adapt tools for undoing it. I would get a new washer from the dealer, its not worth the leak hassle and good luck with the daft plastic under body engine cover and its rusty bolts.

Washer for the sump plug. There isn't one for the filter as I recall. Do not over tighten it, I used a filter strap to remove because it was so tight. Dab a bit of oil around the edge to ensure a good seal.

As I recall, yes, £5 from Halfrauds.
