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.
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.
Found another DIY thread on a Spanish forum using the Honda genuine tool Brico cambio filtro gasoil i-dtec - Accord - Club HondaSpirit
Use Google Translate , just show how easy it is to change the fuel filter using the correct tools.
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
Amazing stuff bud that will be great news for I-DTEC owners. Did you take any picture of your DIY ,if so please post them.
No I didn't take any pics other people have taken far better pics than I can, but I agree with their method
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
