My recently purchased Pela vacuum extractor hose/tube does not fit down the extraction tube , damn. So , having just joined this forum, I appreciate the extra info re joining the extractor hose to the tube. What is it exactly that you use please Thank you
You wouldn't want to go down the extraction tube anyway as narrow pipes take ages to draw out the oil. Attaching direct to the pipe makes it so much quicker.
The vacuum extraction point is 7.8mm OD. This happens to be the ID of the first extension tube on some Pela pumps, but clearly a longer length would be better. So grab a bit of tube with around 7mm ID and use it to join the widest of your Pela extensions to the extraction point.
JLR do list an adaptor that fits to the bayonet of the extraction pipe, but no doubt they want treasure in return for one.
Thanks for the write-up as it makes for a better forum.

Great work there. I have tubing which will allow you to join the vacuum extractor hose to the tube. For doing such a good write up, I will send you some if you want. Pm me an address. I found that I only needed a short length to allow the extractor to sit on the ground.
Could the drip be sunroof drain tubes or aircon tubes?
Hi swansty, I have a 2016 SDV6 3.0, Very much a novice with this vehicle, Ive managed to keep my Td5 as well. I also wish to do mid service engine oil change and thought that it would be simple, ha.

I have just bought a set of vernier callipers so you have given me reason to use them. Will check tonight the dimensions of the hose I use. The stuff I used isn't strictly vacuum hose but done the job.
Edit: I see Robbie has already provided the info needed!

Thanks - great write up as I'm going down the vacuum pump route for my oil change having watched a YouTube of the sump approach featuring a hot oil shower via the chassis rail!

"LR do list an adaptor that fits to the bayonet of the extraction pipe, but no doubt they want treasure in return for one."
Any idea of the part number cannot find on JLR tools site.
The adapter listed is designed for the LR vacuum pump to fit. It looks like an air fitting style connector. I just used a short length of 1/4” hose. That is a tight push fit over the engine vacuum pipe, and a tight fit onto my eBay special vacuum hand pump.
I ended up buying the adapter will have to put on the for sale section as have sold my D4.Defender 300Tdi 110 HCP - Keswick Green

Well done Dan a great write up. My 16 plate still has a service plan until next year but I do the intermediate oil change myself.
For the haters/doubters etc. I sucked the oil out, then removed the drain bung and zero oil came out, not a drop, the drain tube is situated lower than the drain bung so there is no issue sucking the oil out at all.

Can anyone who has used a vacuum to remove oil with the oil extraction pipe on a D4 tell me how much roughly gets left behind in the sump if done on level ground.
Just trying to work out how much less than 5.9 litres will be needed when I re-fill.
