Has anyone changed the oil filter on the 1500 diesel engine k9k.
I removed the under engine plastic panel and drained the sump which requires a 8mm square drive available from Halfords.
Access to the filter is possible form below, not so easy from above as there are four pipes running over the top of the filter casing.
Because of the very awkward and cramped access from underneath I was unable to move the filter with a chain type wrench as rotation was restricted. (This filter is tight) All I did was dent the filter casing.
Can anyone recommend a particular type of wrench.
I have removed a couple of the pipes running over the filter and access is possible from above albeit very awkward.:frown:

When i did mine i used a filter remover with a rubber strap,seemed to grip well but like you say it was welded on,never under stood why they over tighten them,changed mine 3 times now every 10,000 miles ,not had a problem since:wink:
