    Spin-on type. Simply unscrew in the usual direction. Mine is a spin on and is 1.8.

    Do you have a filter removal tool or strap? they do get very tight as the seal swells with contact with oil (this is desirable)

    If not, hammer a screw driver through the metal casing near to the engine side and use it as a lever.

    I assume it is a spin-on and not an element type in a black (usually) plastic enclosure with a removeable lid
