Oil Filter Tool

5 posts in this topic

Just bought oil and filter and notice that the filter is the cartridge type. Had a peer under the engine and it looks like it will come undone by hand or a rubber wrench type thing. Is this the case or do I need a proper fluted wrench?

the cartridge type are usually not too bad providing they have not been over tightened, any i have put on i can undo by hand. there are many tools available for removing stubborn ones though.

If you have a paper filter then you will need a suitable torx socket to drain the oil from the housing first and a suitable very large socket (36mm) to unscrew the plastic filter housing.

doesn't look like there's anywhere to fix a 36mm socket on the filter?
