    Good work there but surely using the chain strap on the cap on the same car regularly will damage the stainer cap. you can add masking tape or even cloth for it to stop biting the plastic top will be getting deformed every time the twisting action is applied.

    Congratulations on doing the fuel filter change. I's always nice doing a job yourself.

    Hi
    Thanks for the info,
    I'm going to change mine this weekend. I have a Oil filter wrench with a web strap instead of a chain, see how that goes.

    Hi all
    The Honda tool for removing the filter housing is aparantly £75ish well this one does the same thing for £4.49 plus £6.39 delivery. I've just got mine and changed the filter no problem on saturday. This the link to the seller on Ebay Isuzu Honda 89mm 15 Flute Oil Filter Wrench Socket | eBay

    Same flutes but the tabs as shown here will be missing for the cap to hook in. If you buy the ebay one please give your feedback. if you can get the filter cap off without the tabs then my friend you have found the holy grail.

    It works a treat, its no different than removing the Oil Filter housing that has no tabs. Its just a big plastic bolt head

    Thats all right chaps. I did end up buying three of these things. The first was 88mm that was a smidge too tight and slipped off very easily so then i order a 90mm that was too loose i tried packing it out but it was too much messing about, Then i found the 89mm one (The wonders of Ebay) and here we are Happy Days
