Drain plug... same place as on all cars.... bottom of the sump..

filter... not sure on 225... think on the right when under the car looking at it from front.

get under and have a look... will only take 5 mins...

(but 15 mins to put the under tray back on tho!)

Take all the Plastic crap off and you will see the filter in the front of the motor covered in coolant lines. Drain plug is on the oil pan you will see it.

Taking the tray down was most of the battle...took like 10 minutes. Its an extremely easy DIY. Once you take the tray down the oil drain is on the front left hand side of the car. The plug itself faces towards the backside of the car. As for the filter it is in the front of the car. It is quite difficult to get at from the top of the car, best is to lay under the car and near the front left handside of the car and reach up...super easy.

Remember when putting the new filter on to put oil in the filter. (Clean new oil) ...your pump has to send oil to it before it gets to your engine...if you dont put oil in it..you might have a dry start ...this is better for your car.

Hope this helps!

I use an automatic center punch to put a small hole in the oil filter and let the oil drain before removing the filter. Much less of a mess.
