  7. Stuck Oil Filter, need wrench reccomendation

    Problems & Issues
    I've always used a cup-type adapter that goes over the end of the oil filter with a 3/8 rachet and it's always worked. I've tried both my metal and graphite cup type with no success, they just spin with out loosening the filter. On my 2005 CRV, the only way to get at the filter is from the end...

    For those of you that have the Filter wrench from HandA, does it go on and off easily? I bought a 14mm from my local NAPA because of the cost of the Honda wrench and the shipping but it just is too hard to use. Practically have to put it on with a rubber hammer. Anyone know how much one is...
