Hate to say this but what's wrong with using gravity and the correct method which is the removal of the sump plug and letting all the oil drain into a deep container ? You can then if you wish use your pump to empty the coil out of the container and into a safe receptacle for later disposal.

I think about the same time 6000 miles which is the regular oil change period. I really don't know ay way around your back problem, mine's stuffed as well due to having T9;10 & 11 fused together after a car accident. To get over the problem I had a large set of ramps made out of four standard ones up so that I can drive my Disco up and work under it in relative comfort.

What's a cyclone filter? There's a number of things that can be called that.

crankcase breather filter, bmw fit them as standard to the td4 engine,dont think land rover never got round to it,it replaces what can only be described as a small paint roller which gets clogged up within days off fitting, can only be bought from bmw,supposed to last for years??
