it looked like an oil filter wrench, but I wantesd to hope he wasnt going to use it for that and he would have figured to use the pliers...

or jam a screw driver through it and twist it off if its for the filter.

is it a 76mm oil filter wrench you are looking for?

Cooper tools carrys Lisle brand tools, and Lisle does make a 76mm filter socket with 14 flutes (Honda and other Japanese cars) so he could order it in for you.

But Canadian tire, Princess auto and other all sell oil filter wrenches. Just take a stock filter down there and make sure you get the correct one. I have some, the Honda one somebody kept (I have to stop lending out tools). But they are more for just removing hot filter I don't want to touch!



I haven't met a filter yet that I couldn't get off with these


Or my big set of channel locks.



Often there is isn't room to get up beside the oil filter, (Which is why I suspect you want a filter socket) so I open the channel locks all the way up and grab the filter straight from the bottom. Squish it down hard and turn sideways. It will come off. If you can't get it off with your hands now, there is little hope a plastic socket will. They just jump the little flutes on the filter.



The filter will probably look like this when done.

Ahh unless that is you meant an actual 76mm socket, which is nut size for something you would likely only see on like a Hyundai cargo ship.

i had a nut on the end of my transmission in my truck that required at 70mm and needed to be torqued to 175 ft lbs, Ford sold it as a special tool.

i ended up just making my own out a square piece of steel and reefing with a bar as hard as i could, i assume it must be at least 175ft lbs because its still rollin haha

lots of european cars moved to a drop in style oil filter. Altough the ones Ive seen just used a 13mm head screw (which was very long) and it threaded into the housing.

76mm is an awefully strange way of doing it. Is it on a much newer car?

I've never seen sockets that size. But one of my cousins works on massive mining equipment up north, and told me those big wrenches can be a few hundred bucks each! And they are not very big, they are just designed to be hit with a hammer.

just stab a screw driver through the filter and turn it like a wrench, can make a mess but gets the job done quick

They why doesn't it have a little nut on top? Alt the ones I have worked on like that have like a 17mm or something nut on top? What kind of car is this anyways.

Some companies do make after market housings.

True, probably so they can get more revenue on services. But since Mercedes charges up the ass for everything, Mr. Lube probably cashs in more i bet

Funny enough I was taking a peek around a newer C230, and the later ones do have a nut on top... Wink But a quick google show they aren't interchangeable.
