    I have a stahlbus. I thought about cutting an access panel into the bash plate but I quite like having a good look around while the oil is draining. Now I have the right bolts on the bash plate ( all sorts of dodgy and missing crap when I bought the car ) I now have a little routine. Spin them out with the rattle gun and itís off super quick, they go back in with fingers to start the thread and hang the plate, and then a quick buzz with the air ratchet to do them back up.

    So the stahlbus is still protected by the bash plate?

    The Fumoto or Stahlbus drain valves are handy, but IMHO anything like that sticking out underneath is asking for trouble, might as well not bother with the bash plates.
    I have a Stalhbus and it fits under the bash plate.

    For services I use 4 ramps and any suspension work I have 4 stands but only jack the front or back up so I donít have the entire vehicle supported by the stands. Have a 2500kg trolley jack. Wouldnít go any lighter.

    No problem with the Stalhbus - and a small hole through the bash plates has it sorted. It certainly wonít get hit offroad or on.

    Any body got a link for buying Stalhbus in Australia? Also what size is needed for a 2.7 TDV6?

    Thanks

    Yep. I have cut a hole in the bash plate too. I cover the hole with some wide cloth tape to keep sand out. So far it has stayed on between services.

    Never cleaned mine - simply drain it into an oil bottle like an oil pan. Sure gravity is quicker, but the additional ten minutes allows me to drink two additional beers. I think Iím on the winner.

    Fuel filter is another 5 min.
