Have a 2020 defender limited with A/c

changing oil and filter the owners manual isn’t clear the location seems to be incorrect I see that the oil filter location is at the front of engine towards the back of the cab is this true ?

It's about 2" round and held in place with 3 torqx screws, on the passengers side if memory is correct towards the front of the engine. the filter is an insert style be careful with the O ring.🤔

Cover is a bit larger than 2" here is a shot of Bear's filter cover. Just forward of the filler.... behind the wiring.

It seems there’s a different location if it has A/C the compressor is located where the manual says it appears to be at the front towards the cab instead attached pictures

Ya the compressor is in the way and I think I know where the filter is from the photo but it looks like it is pointed right at the back of the middle seat and that is why I was wondering if a panel needed to be removed to get to it.

If it's the limited hdt it is in front of the ac unit front center of motor.  Not easy to get to.  Have to do it by feel cause you can't see it.
