I have a lift in my shop and it looks like a ***** to get to It must be even worse on the ground.If there is a special tool please let me know.
It is a ***** to change. And the trick is trying not to get diesel all over yourself. One hint is to attach a longer hose to drain port on the filter so it can be better directed away from you and into a pan. I attack it from both underneath and thru the fender well, not easy but doable. #@&*^
