Removing Oil Filter

Postby Meriadoc » Fri Feb 04, 2005 10:17 pm

Today I changed the engine oil and fitted a new oil filter, also found some road kill nestled beside the radiator (maybe I should fit a grill, the roads will soon be full of Pheasants).

Anyway, it was a nightmare removing the old oil filter! Could Mazda have placed it in a more awkward place? After struggling with the oil filter for about an hour it eventually moved, and I could unscrew it. There was no room to accommodate the handle of my oil filter wrench.

Does anyone know of a good oil filter removal tool, for a Mk1 1.8? I don?t want to have to repeat today?s arduous struggle.
