advice on changing oil filter 2001 estima mcr30

Recommended Posts

The oil filter on this vehicle is rather evil to reach. The only way seems to be to reach up through a tiny gap underneath the vehicle, and as such there is not enough room to get a filter wrench onto it or get any decent purchase. Anyone have any advice?

Much appreciated.

I can reach mine with my hand and undo it. Sometimes I do need filter removal tool that fits onto the end of a ratchet. Its easy to do.

Yeh, I finally had to take it to a mechanic. He said there was no way it was coming off without power tools, so whoever serviced the vehicle last did a fine job of tightening it up.
