    What size is the oil filter cap?

    Need to change my oil filter, but its stuck solid. Tried grips, stilsons, all sorts.
    i have access to the big socket type oil filter tool. But one is missing and that's the one I need. Does anyone know the size in MM?

    il Jst order one from the bay.

    Not sure on the size but I got mine from Halfords. GSF do them as well. It's a generic VAG tool, I think

    23mm is not right mate. Mine is a 1.9 pd130. They between 60-80mm roughly.
    Unless your mistaken for something else, I'm talking about the big plastic nut that's on top of the housing of the oil filter.
    Il pop to a motor factors tomorrow and ask to try one

    It's 32mm then. Lol
    I bought a socket especially for it. Mines definitely not over 50mm.

    I'm confusing things now sorry.

    I do remember my fabia vrs pd1.9 oil filter cap being 76mm though if that helps!

    Seems you have a retro-fit oil filter housing cap, Kris. The 2.5 TDI has a smaller 'nut' on top

    Whereas the 1.9 TDI doesn't

    I'll stick with the 2.5 cap I think, much easier to take off when you got the socket! Lol

    I also went out to take a pic in the rain and forgot about engine cover. Doh
