Trying to change my oil in the 2.0 petrol Mondeo. Sump plug = easy. filter = impossible! I just can't get the housing off. I've bought 2 tools today to try and sort it both with no luck. I don't really wanna go back out there and buy something else that won't work so was wondering what have people used that will DEFINATELY get this B*****d off?
What year? If it's an early one then you need one of these. It's an "Oil Filter Cup Wrench" which is 76mm with 14 flutes. It will say it is suitable on all eco filters on Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and Volkswagen, but will fit the early MK3 Mondeos no problem. :L
No problem Meekstaaa, glad to help out, it's what this place is all about. Some times I ask for help on here and get the replys I need, so it's nice to give some useful help back. Glad you got it sorted fella. :L
I love these places so much, they give so much help, simply excellent! Col_tubbs is there any benefit to changing oil filter to the later one? Richfife i bought one of those first but it just wouldn't work i'm sure it'll come in handy one day though
