I have a Toyota avensis 2.0 d4d tourer estate 09 onwards and I was wondering how to remove the Oil filter housing, I have tried with a strap wrench but to no avail, any tips will be greatly appreciated,

Cheers Phil

Hi Philip are you talking about removing the filter cartrige,if you are you will be replacing it so dont worry about damaging it drive a screwdriver through it,some times plain old brute force does the job.Its worked for me in the past,hope this helps?

The housing stays with the car, it's a paper filter inside that you change, I managed it in the end with a hammer and extension on the lugs of the housing, cheers though!!!

Hi Phil

I hit a similar problem with my 06 D4D. I bought a Halfords advanced 'universal' type filter removal tool. The only problem is that it is a little too big so I had to sleeve the arms down a bit with bicycle inner tube. Its been a bit fiddly but it the best I have come up with so far. There's loads of cheap stuff out there but I don't think it is worth buying. If you are keeping the car for a while a genuine Toyota tool may be worth the investment.

Good luck.
