Oh, I forgot to mention, all the cars I have changed oil filters on have had easy access. Escort, Mazda 323. Not changed my own on my Evo. Just realised, my advise might not be to helpfull if it is tucked away somewhere that hands cant really get to :embarrest: my badI have a big socket for the element with a cap type and a metal strap tool for the canister ones. Although canisters I can often get off with just my hands, or if not, aye, knock a screwdriver through it.
The Bora is handy as the filter is in a housing at the front of the engine so dead easy to access.

Alternatively, engage the services of a local escort agency.
Your going straight to hell for that one!
Don't know what you mean? Ford has made some very good mid sized cars :embarrest:
Yeah but you'd think that if they get chanfed every 6 months or so then they would be so bad,They all tighten themselves when driving.
I've got a chain and strap for some reason.
I use to be one of those people :embarrest: until I learnt better off it.If the hand of stamford can't shift it then I use a chain wrench and ratchet. Never had to use a screwdriver as yet. Never understood why so many people wind them up so tight.
