The filter housing drain plug will come with every filter cartridge, but no need to use it -- it may help reduce the oil-drip mess when removing the housing.  

You should get the proper tool to remove the oil filter housing, readily available from several sources ….. e.g. --

Otherwise you will need sockets remove many  (~ 20 bolts/screws -- M5, M6 and M8) securing the under-tray, as well as a 14mm socket (I believe) to remove the sump drain plug.

Have fun. ;)
