ya cav's suck to change oil on. I do them cold reach around the exhaust to get the filter. As for the oil that will drip on your exhaust for the next week. Easy fix. spray down everything with brake or carb cleaner to get the residual oil off the block. I used to use dawn and water and spray it with a weed killer sprayer. I know you cav owners hate the smell of burning oil for few weeks at after every oil change.
