I haven't checked either of our diesel 2.2's but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the oil is sucked out the dipstick tube, possibly indicating that it won't have a sump drain plug at all.

Just Google  "Removing engine oil by suction"     It's not uncommon.
Look at life through the windscreen, not the rearview mirror.

Has anyone tried this? I've a tube that seems to get stuck half way down so I'm thwarted yet again. I  get the impression there seems
to be a bit of a deliberate type of block to prevent tubing from going down?? Perhaps they use narrow gauge rod?
I may try this but this has made me more determined....
