    Trying to change oil filter, but last one must've been put on by Gerald the gorilla,  filter wrench just slipping round and off.  Any ideas before moving to a screw driver through it  :034:

    That's a good idea!  I would have never thought of that.  I've done the screwdriver before.

    That's the very fella' Winger,  was fully on the filter but spinning of, even trying to hold it on with a baton behind the socket ratchet againt the exhaust downpipes.

    Hence the number of pre drilled holes for plenty of self tappers.
