I am planning on doing this early after 4000kms when the car is new. So there will potentially be lots of metal filings dripping out of the filter as I remove it or at the bottom of the housing. Any tips to mop these up?

I change the oil when the engine is warm, so I suppose to let the engine oil cool down a bit before attempting the procedure

Thanks!
