    950S OIL FILTER WRENCH ?? What Size ?

    Good afternoon : )

    I can not seem to find an oil wrench to take off that FREAKING overtightened oil filter !  Ugh.  Frustrating.  Why do they do that ?   

    Is it a 76MM - 14 Flute ?   

    I've been searching everywhere.  I just need to get a HI FLOW filter on there next time and its frustrating taking this thing off

    Thanks

    When they are stuck that tight, regular filter spanners sometimes just don't cut it as the metal can of the filter distorts before the seal breaks. If that is the case, you can stab it with a screw driver to get it off. Dramatic, but effective. Remember to offset the screwdriver or you just hit the internal bolt.

    You don't have a set of channel locks? That's what I used to remove my factory filter.
