Default Will This Work For Oil Filter Removal?

Alright I want to do a oil change and I am trying to get something locally to remove the oil filter canister without ordering online, has anyone used or know if this would be okay to use on removing it? I don't want to damage it but I also don't really want to wait 2 weeks and pay like $30 for a remover unless need be.

Looks exactly like the one that I purchased at Autozone for about the same price. I have not tried it yet, but hopefully if I have time tomorrow I will. The size of the wrench needed is within the range of that one.

yea i noticed it was within range also, thought it would be better to get if it works since that it would work on multiple cars/sizes if need be... let me know if it works!

nope didn't work for me, the arms of it are not long enough to grasp the filter since it is rounded on the bottom, would need to be like another inch or so long on the arms to work... grrr guess I have to order one of the OEM types

Finally tried tonight, and it is a DEFINITE NOT usable. HOWEVER, being I had already drain my oil and such and I REALLY didn't want to put new oil in with the old filter, I finally was able to remove it with the generic belt style wrench. I did have to angle it a bit but was able to get it off as well as put it back on. The other tool, even if it DID work to remove it, it is only for one direction, removal, so therefor would not be able to tighten the cap back on.

My recommendation is to buy the OEM style, 86mm wrench, would be MUCH easier to remove and reinstall, as well as you don't have to worry about the belt style putting tooo much pressure on the cap and breaking it. Most cars do not matter if they get squishified on the way out because the entire thing is replaced, filter/cap combo. I have found it on several sites for around $10 which is very reasonable, and a lot of sites will ship for free if you order at least $50 of items. Never hurts to have extra filters, cabin air filters, engine air filters, etc.

I am going to place my order for that wrench soon and will just order me some more oil filters and an extra oil cap just in case something were to happen to the one on there.

Default Oil filter tool

I have 4 cars, 2 bikes and boats. I also have about 5 different filter tools. Your photo dod not show up when I looked but for $10 i purchased a tool from auto zone, it's a 6 inch pipe with a black stap that wraps around the filter, it fits everything but my boats because there is no room in my boats.
