Default having trouble with oil filter cover

had my exhaust fix over the week end and tech told me that my oil filter is leaking.
I found a 86mm 16 flute socket for the oil filter cover but it does not work,it keeps slipping on cover,do i have the right size.

It can be done and you have no choice. Or get a really good removal tool made of cast aluminum.Sheet metal or plastic ones will not work if it`s on that tight as you found out.
