WTBorrow Oil filter socket
 
Anyone have one I could borrow for a day or two? Just got a new filter and decided against buying the socket, which was stupid on my part. Ill gladly pay shipping.

Borrowed from FinishLine/Rosenthal

They have them at autozone, and just about every other parts store I've been to..

I always get mine off by hand, over tightening can cause leaks and the need for an oil filter socket.

+1 by hand.

seriously dude.....no need to tighten to the point where you can't take it off. finesse will save you a lot of grief.....and money on unnecessary tools.

There was a time when mine was too tight and the only way to get it off was to stick a screwdriver through it to get it off, talk about a frustrating lesson learned!!
