This anodized silver billet aluminum ECS filter housing requires no special tool to open the drain plug during an oil change; all you need is a common 8 mm Allen wrench. For added convenience, the housing plug sealing ring is identical to the one on the crankcase drain plug, making it easy to source and install new seals for a leak-free job.
This kit includes the 36 mm socket needed to unscrew the housing from the engine
Remove the old filter, and install a new one.
Replace the rubber housing oil ring with the new o-ring contained in the filter kit.
Screw the housing/filter on to the engine, and torque to 18 foot pounds. Reinstall the drain plug with new copper ring, and tighten 22 foot pounds.
Add engine oil.
That's it. No more cracked housings. No more oil spills on your garage floor. No need for a special drain plug tool. No more plastic drain plugs mangled by adjustable pliers.
Talk about a no-brainer.
