    Default Beg, borrow, hire or buy oil filter tool 3.0 V6 cdti

    After attempting my first oil change with my new Vec C I realised that removing the filter is a more than a little hard without the correct tool.

    For information the domed cover is 103mm dia across the flats and there 14 of them. Band filter remover or chain wont work. The latter is too febble and the former is too wide so it doesnt get a grip.

    I would be very very grateful to come to an arrangement with a forum member to borrow or hire the correct tool or even buy.

    Thanks
    Nigel

    Eh? You did what to the filter?

    Did you try using the 36mm nut on the top of the filter like everyone else?
