1974 Volkswagen Beetle type 1 mileage: 85,000. I have just purchased this car and I am in the process of restoring it, but I need to change the oil and I have an oil filter. I looked in the manual on where the oil drain is and the filter would be kept and it did not show. So know I am confused on where to find the information on how to change the oil and the filter.

In the center of the engine on the bottom of the crank case you will find a round steal plate, approximately four inches in diameter that has six bolts holding it to the bottom of the engine. Remove the six bolts and the cover to allow the oil to drain and give you access to the oil screen that is behind the four inch steel plate. You car was originally not equipped with an "oil filter".
