oil filter cup tool size recommendation

Recommended Posts

hi all, 

am looking for recommendations of exact size of oil filter cup spanner.

i have a 2.2D 177CV T25 estate and fancy having a go myself at the oil filter change - but want the right tool so not to cause damage to the oil filter housing.

some of these tools appear to be 64mm or 64.5mm or 65mm and are listed for Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Sienna, Tundra and not explicitly for the Avensis.

Anyone have confidence that a 64.5mm 14 flute cup would be suitable?

fyi, there is another old thread about this although it may be for a different model

I have Sealey VS7112 oil filter cap wrench for my 2.2D.

It is possible to remove the housing without the filter wrench.

Possibly, if it’s not too tight.

Do you know how to drain it using the nut on the bottom and the plastic tube?

only from what ive seen off youtube. I guess i will need that tube kit to drain it then or it that optional?

When you buy a filter, it usually (I’ve had one with every filter) comes with the plastic drain.

Draining the filter housing makes it much less messy when you remove it.

ok, so i got an oil filter and it has that tube to drain the oil within it.

today i removed the underside vehcile plastic to inspect the filter and found this (photo attached - highlighted in green)

so whomever last serviced this, they damaged that bolt cap that drains the oil from the filter.

so it's unclear if i will be able to safely undo that bolt cap, i gave it a little effort and those stripped bolt threads do not augur well

so my question is, is that cap available as a spare part alone in the event i do ultimately remove it once i take the whole filter off?

in terms of the filter itself, my rubber strap wrench was unable to move it and rubber/wooden mallet persuasion and some teflon spray on the seal did not help either.....so i am going to order the spanner cup wrench tool.

Yes, you will need a proper tool, long breaker bar, socket, and new filter housing. All available from eBayhttps://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-AVENSIS-OIL-FILTER-HOUSING-CAP-COVER-2-2-D-4D-15650-38020-15650-0R020-/383661011849?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
Anything you need just type in eBay search window and different options pops up. 
Good luck

Can’t you get a set of Stilsons onto the outside of that?

There is no need for that to be horsed up so tight.

Just get another nut at a scrappy.

forgive the newbie tool query....my specific cup wrench tool arrived, but my socket set is metric and the 24mm socket is too small and the 27mm slightly to loose to attach securely to the cup.

none of the square inserts fit the inner part of the 3/8 cup either.

are there common 3/8 to metric adaptor sockets for this or do i need to get a whole new devoted closed spanner for this?

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
