    Default 422 OIl Filter Removal

    Is there an easy way to take off and on the oil filter. Can't get hand between tub and filter.

    Thanks
    Frank

    Unfortunately, no.

    I came in through the back tub openings, but it would bruise up my forearms. Maybe some type of tool would help? Something like this with along with an air ratchet?

    4 Piece End Cap Oil Filter Wrenches

    Or something simpler like this?

    Good luck!

    Frank, are you talking about the engine oil filter or the hydraulic oil filter?

    Not sure how you are doing it, but I move the gas tank out of the way and take the heat shield out. It's still a tight fit but I can get my skinny arms in there.

    I've gotten one of those plastic filter wrenches on to a swivel with extension on to a ratchet and was able to get it loose. I remember I think it was MR, said to get a baggy over the filter before it comes off, to keep the oil mess in the bag, so to speak.

    I've gotten one of those plastic filter end cap wrenches, like Kevin shows in his link, on to a swivel with extension on to a ratchet and was able to get it loose. I remember I think it was MR, said to get a baggy over the filter before it comes off, to keep the oil mess in the bag, so to speak.

    I use the baggy, but that's on the hydraulic filter, not the engine oil filter. My engine oil filter on the Kohler is very easy to access.

    12year old armed with a filter end-cap socket and ratchet, with supervision. or when I do the oil filter change myself I take the engine bolts loose and shift the motor to the side for easier access and remember to ''bag'' the filter to avoid the mess
