Drain plug on the oil pan is pretty straightforward, use a new copper washer and don't overtorque the plug (30 Nm is about it).

Oil filter can only be removed from underneath. It is on the driver's side of the engine. Clean the microfilter (that is the important filter, as it filters most of the oil) and replace the filter inset. If the microfilter is damaged, replace it. Use a new washer and rubber O ring to put the filter back together again.

For more info: go to this page:
18 Engine Lubrication, Engine Oil Cooling - OM616
and select 18-005, the first five pages are about the 240D you have.
