Changed my oil for the first time this weekend on my '06 and found it was a lot different then my '02. They've added a ton of plastic shielding to the bottom, and it's pretty much impossible to drain it without getting it on the top side of all the shielding. That made for a nice mess that I had to clean up. The '02 was much easier. Also, the filter is impossible to get to with an extension and filter wrench. I had to use no extension and kind of maneuver the wrench with my hand through one of the access holes. What a pain. The filter changed from small import filter to garden tractor small. My 1400 cc motorcycle has a bigger filter.
Anyone remove the shield when changing the oil? I was tempted to do so, but I figure next time around I'll be that much better at doing it. Plus, the filter won't be on as tightly as it was from the factory.
