The oil filter in behind the right wheel drive shaft and is so tricky to grip with my hands. :mad:

Do I need to take off the wheel off to get to it better?

In my experience it's rare for any screw-on type oil filter to be removed by hand.

Most people use a special tool for the job and yes it is easier to access with the car jacked up and wheel removed.

Do a google search for "oil filter wrench" a variety of types some be easily found.:)

My dad has a oil filter wrench but it was to big to grip it.
We then had to use a hammer and a screw driver to get it off, took over half an hour, it was really stuck on there.
Thanks for your help :d

They come off if you have sufficiently strong hands and and can maintain the torque for a wee while.
