    I got mine from Halfords £4.99

    or just do a search for "Oil Filter Cup Wrench 76mm"

    I use an old leather belt wrapped around. It works! Each time I think I will get a tool but then I forget!!!

    For those that do oil changes themselves, how do you do it, do you use a ramp or anything to get access to the sump?

    Now my car is lowered on coilovers, the clearance isn't sufficient.

    I'd like to start doing oil changes myself.
