Lower fuel filter.

What kind of wrench do most of you guys use to remove the cap on the lower fuel filter? Everytime I've changed mine before, I did it in my dad's shop, so tools weren't an issue. I went to change it last night in my driveway, and couldn't find anything in my garage to fit up in there. Just wanting some ideas on what works best.

I think a 32mm socket will fit. That is what I use. It is the same cap as the oil filter cap.

What they said, I had to get a 3/8 drive emergency style because when I was changing it for the first time since I owned it, I didn't have the right size and Autozone only had a 3/8 drive socket. But it worked fine.

Like said above, 36 mm socket and ratchet. Is that the best way??? Just did my first fuel filter change yesterday on a PSD. Itís a 4x4. Man, was I cursing out those engineers.
