SOURCE: oil filter is stuck tried
This is a major drag for sure.. sorry to hear you are having this problem.
Obviously someone did not lube the rubber seal before putting the filter on.. remember it's stuck because the rubber seal is compressed against the machined surface..the filter is not stuck on the threads.
A few things you can try.. single sided razor blade run around the base as best you can..to break the seal.. or a thin bladed screwdriver.. be careful and try to avoid scarring the machined surface.
A band or strap wrench.. you may need to use sandpaper between the band and the filter.. to get extra grip
A large pair of C shaped pliers..
The last step is to drive a screw driver through the filter and reef it around.. very messy.. at some point you will expose the filter holes in the base of the oil filter.. and you can place a dull chisel,punch or screwdriver in one of these and use a hammer to drive it off or break it free.
Make sure to clean that machined base to ensure that no tiny pieces of the old filter seal remain. Very important to do this.. if that surface is not nice and flat.. chances of a presure leak are greatly increased and could happen within moments of first run.. days or weeks later.. and it's a real mess... not to foget the potential harm from loss of oil.
A little silicone grease or even clean motor oil on the new filter seal before applying will be a step I am sure you will never forget. Sorry to hear you had this problem.. extremely frustrating to say the least.
Best of Luck!
