And if I was you I'd loosen up the oil filter before you do ANYTHING. If you try and undo the oil filter with oily hands you will struggle a lot!

The oil filter tool costs about £5 from any motors factory.










Good luck.


Very good tip. I personally don't like the first oil tool but any of the others I get along with, never seem to get as good grip with the first.
Golf MK3 1.8 auto and I didn't pay a grand for the "priveledge" :grin:, auto windows all round and a AC. Oh and I've got a luggage net you pricks!

Does that make my willy look bigger?

Oh yeah it's called Helda or something....

Oh and this is the type I have from Snap On:



Never let me down yet. :)

Oh and another thing, DO NOT do the oil filter up with a tool, hand tight and wipe a bit of oil on the rubber seal first so it doesn't grip when doing it up.
