You will need a special tool - SST 09228-06501 (Filter Wrench) - to complete this procedure. You can usually rent/buy this tool from any local parts store:

  • Connect the hose (15 mm) to the pipe.graphic
  • Remove the oil filter drain plug from the oil filter cap.graphic
  • Insert the pipe with the hose into the oil filter cap. NOTICE: Be sure to insert the pipe with the O-ring installed on the oil filter cap side. HINT: Place the hose end into a container before draining the oil from the hose.graphic
  • Make sure that oil is completely drained, and remove the pipe and O-ring. HINT: Be sure to turn the pipe in the direction of the arrow to remove it.graphic
  • Using SST, remove the oil filter cap. SST 09228-06501graphic
  • Remove the oil filter element and O-ring from the oil filter cap. NOTICE: Do not use any tools to remove the O-ring in order to prevent the cap from being damaged. Be sure to remove it by hand.graphic
