  1. 1

    Lift the front of your Focus with a hydraulic jack. Make sure that the wheels are at least three inches off the ground.

  2. 2

    Slide on your back under the front of your Focus while holding a flashlight.

  3. 3

    Turn on the flashlight. Look up when you are near the centre of the engine compartment. Above the bolt that holds the oil in your oil pan, there is a cylinder roughly the size of a large soup can. This is the oil filter, which is often white but comes in other colours as well.
