Question about 1988 Volvo 240
I have two oil filter grips but cannot get access to the oil filter with either.
Is there a specific way of accessing this, it is on very tight.
I have never had this problem before on any other car.
I would appreciate your help.
There are a varity of oil filter removers on the market and most work by gripping side on to the filter making them useless in confined spaces. There is a modle that comes up from the bottom and clamps around the filter and has a drive in the bottom that allows you to use an extension to get to a more accessable place . It comes in about 3 sizes for different filters.and is available from most auto specialist shops.
