There is nowt to worry about when doing std servicing on these cars, the oil filters an element/paper type which comes out of the top of the housing (so thats one less place for the oil to run down your arm from [
As for the pollen filter, it does have one (rectangular) and its located under the wiper arm scuttle panel, you may have to pop the wiper arms off to get at it (not as bad as it sounds) couple of clips/screws around the edge & job done.
Semi synt (10/40w) should do the job nicley,but for sure, keep to the intervals as best you can.
Hope it goes well..
It's not a job,it's an adventure !!
