You could try using a pair of large channel lock pliers, but only use it to engage the 2 "wings" on the housing to turn it. Those wings are below the tiny grooves where the oil filter wrench suppose to grip.kanji4ever said:Any one has any tip on removing filter housing?
Thanks in advance
You could also try that cap oil filter wrench again, but this time also grab those 2 wings with your other hand to help turn it while you use the wrench so you are not only relying on the wrench to turn the housing. Those 2 wings are exactly 180 degrees from one another.
As far as draining the oil in the housing, I had purchased a Purolator cartridge that comes with a screw on type drain plug. You just screw it into the threads of the cap in the housing and it slowly inserts itself as you turn clockwise to drain it. And, you can control the flow of the oil.
Hope this helps.
When you do get it off, only hand tighten the housing after you put a layer of oil on the new rubber ring.
