    Hey guys,

    I am new to this forum, I own a 2014 Scion tC and am gonna DIY an oil change I realized the oil filter is at the bottom and that you need to remove it with a certain tool? Does anyone know if I need this tool and what that specific too is?

    Thanks!

    hey you're welcome! and yup, all I do is use a 3/8" drive extension onto the ratchet and just break the oil filter loose. That way I don't get oil all over the extension/ratchet, just spin it off by hand. let the gloves I'm wearing get all the oil on them. But it's a great tool, just put it on manually, the sides are spring loaded to fit a variety of filter sizes. This one (at my link) fits the tC's oil filter perfectly. I've been using it for over 10 years now. Wow it's been that long!

    oh and yeah I echo what yotagirl said.. welcome to cstc.
