Be cognizant of said vehicle dropping. I was committed since the sauce was dumped so I was forced to get the ridiculously placed can and filter out. It says to torque so I used Polish torque on it.
The filter cap is located in an “unfriendly” location compared to the 451 filter. Guess a strap wrench might work but why not buy the correct 27mm - as stated - socket to more easily remove the filter cap? My concern is the cap is plastic and can easily be buggered up. Wish it was metal!It is not that difficult if you have the right tools. Nice to have if you're planning on doing your own oil changes.
- 8mm square drive for the drain plug
- 27mm socket for the filter cap
