Anyone but the special service tool from Toyota - what did it cost and where is a good place to get it. I dumped the oil yesterday but could not change the filter and would like to do so at 3K
That could mean 65mm across and 14mm high?
What about this tab? It's the first I've heard of that.
Is it too tight to remove by hand?65mm across, 14 faces. The tab is near the base flange of the filter housing and has a little finger that reaches out and hits the ridges on the housing. You could probably just force it, but seems better to pop it out. It will make sense when you see it.
