Stuck Filter

Hey guys, Its come time to change my coolant filter and i had oiled it but my uncle tightened it for me to make sure "it wouldn't fall off" but now its stuck.. i have had neighbors try, i tried, i tried an oil filter wrench thing, i stabbed a screw driver into it, all sorts of things.. any one have any suggestions for getting it off... this is kind of my last resort!

Those filters are a major PITA to get off. I usually have to take my filter head off and put the filter in a vice and turn the filter head with a pipe wrench or whatever else I can find.

bench vice works great. put the clamps of the vice on the actual filter at the top of it right before it mates to the head and it will pull the filter away from the head. works great had to do the same to mine

Yeah... thinking 'outside the box', can you simply remove the entire filter system (I know mine came out real easy) and then do what sprksonu says and clamo a vice on it and then spin the head off?

Re: Stuck Filter

It takes very little pressure to seat the coolant filter. Don't forget to relieve the degass bottle prior to removal.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Unfortunately had to Sell my ......2004 KR CC SWB FX4 - Edge insight cts, blue spring upgrade, updated HFCM drain plug, XDP coolant filter, CAT EC-1 rated coolant, Custom Diesel EGR delete, CAT delete, Rotella T6
