Oil Filter Removal

Recommended Posts

Does the bottom drain plug have to be removed to take off the oil filter bowl? Apparently the Lexus shop techs tighten them excessively in my opinion.

No, you can take the whole thing off to expose the filter right away. Yours should unscrew just like my 2010 using special wrench Assenmacher AST Toyota/Lexus oil filter wrench TOY 640/09228-06501 - 64mm. Note that you have to have something good sized underneath to catch about 1/3 of a quart of splashing / dripping oil; my favorite is an old roasting tray.

Thanks for the hit Harryn. I now have the tool in my possession so will be all set when the next service is due. Have a great day!
