Re: EB Oil Filter removal
If you have an ordinary strap wrench, this is what I do. I should say that my wrench has a pivoting handle, which helps a lot. I pass the strap part up to the filter body from the inboard side of the angled subframe member. I do tilt my handle to one side, this does help. Then I pass the strap over the filter body and wiggle it up the body towards the engine. Then you can loosen it. It is a bit of a bugger, especially I think if you have a conventional strap wrench.
You can get the pivoted ones like mine (Lisle) or you can get another one that has a 1/2" drive socket and where you can get onto it from the end of the filter by wrapping the strap bit around the filter and engaging a square drive. They work.
Then again, there's always the long screwdriver (or cold chisel) and hammer approach.............
