Thanks Indmar

Brief thank you to Indmar for ingenious design that took me 4 hours to remove oil filter. You need a 5 year old kid with world strong man strength to get to this dang filter

Get one of these steel cups and flex head ratchet and you are golden. Don't get the plastic or nylon one, they strip out too easy.

Both great ideas, I'll do that hopefully next year lol! By the way while on here this mastercraft 2002 x5 has two oil housings, does it matter which I put oil in?

There is another option too which I use and that is the K & N oil filter which has a nut on the bottom which enables you to use a wrench to undo the filter. https://www.knfilters.com/wrenchoff_oilfilter.htm
Hope this link works!

I think most agree the filter is a good quality filter too.

You can add oil to either valve cover opening.
