I have the same wrench but not much use in my case - there's not much space to move it around.
Used it just to rotate the filter only a few degrees, then using thin piece of clean cloth for good grip, unscrewed it by hand.
I tightened the new filter the same way.

madnoel10's wrench in the post is probably the best solution in tight spaces.
However, another possibility (provided you have strong hands) is to use a piece of old sandpaper.

Re: Renault Scenic - Oil filter Removal

Has anyone seen the large socket type cup that fits over canister sockets ?

Like this one. I know this is for paper element filters, but would be easier to get the old one out if it was a matter of putting this on the end.

Re: Renault Scenic - Oil filter Removal

there are a couple of methods you could try. if you have a large pair of waterpump pliers you could try them if you can get a grip. you could try one of the easily available filter wrenches or failing that you could try the butcher method (hammer a broad screwdriver through filter body) i have yet to come across a filter that cant be removed

Re: Renault Scenic - Oil filter Removal

Renault Scenic 1.9dCI 04 plate.

Tried to do a quick "between service" oil & filter change last weekend and ended up spending two days on the job.

Oil filter stuck like it was welded on - serviced by Renault Aldershot 6000 miles ago.

Tried strap wrenches, oil filter wrenches all no success - mainly because of the lack of space from above or below and therefore no leverage room.

Eventually resorted to removing the whole front of the car - front plastics, metal bumper, air scoops, intercooler, and moving air conditioning condenser and finally removing the electric fan and moving the radiator forward.

The extra space finally permitted leverage for a normal oil filter wrench to work but I saw that I started moving the oil pump housing as well that the filter is mounted to, before the filter finally letting go.

Bugger of a job!

Upside - discovered that the intercooler had jumped out of its mounts and have now made a small mod to prevent this in future.

Downside - have to find out why the intercooler is wet with oil - turbo seals no doubt.

The Scenic IIs are great cars but just one thing after another.

Thank heavens for you guys!!
