    When I take off my oil filter I wrap a piece of sandpaper around it (grit against filter) and twist.
    A lot less messier than putting a screwdriver through it and if you getthe screwdriver way wrong you'll end up ripping the filter apart.
    The position of filter on my car (1.8t) is, when I'm facing front of car, it's on my right.
    If u find the filter too tight using the sandpaper method, some trips to the Gym are required
