EB Oil Filter removal

Any easy way to get them off? Cant get enough grip in the cramped space with a regular filter wrench.

I've done a forum search but didn't find anything, although I think it has been covered in the past...

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.............

You need a tool like this http://www.northerntool.com/images/p.../154078_lg.jpg or this http://www.kctools.com.au/images/TOO...%20REMOVER.jpg or this http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P...2.MZZZZZZZ.jpg most parts places sell them. Used end on with a 1/4 or 3/8 " drive rachet and extention bar.
