    The bigger B6 filter has a "thing" on the bottom you can slot a screwdriver shaft into.

    This is the one I used it got the most votes in a survey when I looked for one at the time..

    It's all about getting in to turn the Filter with your hand..

    I always undo the water top up reservoir and move it to one side so you can access the oil filter better..

    I only used this because some Mechanic over tightened it..

    When you Screw in your new Filter use a pair of Gloves to tighten the Filter Hand tight then you will never need a Wrench again you should be able to unscrew again with gloves on..

    No need for a Wrench should only be done up hand tight anyhow..

    I always use the bluefin one posted earlier. Far easier to use than any other chain type I had used in the past.
