I bought a cheap one from amazon it worked fine for few years but now it slips on the filter. It's a filter cap wrench. 64mm i think?

I never thought much of the oil filter wrench since it does not clamp down on the filter until you turn it by then your out of room to keep turning.

Motivx Tools makes some nice ones but not for Honda.

Thanks

Spend the money and get the real thing: Honda cap wrench, p/n 07AAA-PLCA100, about $25. Needs a 3/8" ratchet.

For use with oil filter part numbers 15400-PLM-A01 and 15400-PLM-A02 (and probably the newest one, -A03).

Since I buy only Mobil 1 filters (I've gotten through the terrible Fram filters I bought on sale), the end cap wrench has worked fine for me since the 90s. I am pretty sure I bought them at the auto parts store. Nice and thick, and fit perfectly. But I really do need to get some of those filter pliers, in case I come across a car where the filter is stuck.

One time in a pinch, I got out my biggest channel locks and crunched on it. The filter had no choice but to come off. 😁
