It will be fine, just make sure you have a good set of these when you do it.

These things are amazing for unscrewing oil filters, when I took mine off, this was the only thing I had that was able to unscrew this stuck on over tightened oil filter. there like 24$ at Canadian Tire, worth having them in your tool box if you do your own oil changes.

I have a set of these, they usually come on special for about 20$ every now and then, they are the 12in'ers

My first one was a complete pain to do..
http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=111371
But.... Like I had to do on my Challenger before it, all I do is put a 1-gallon Ziplock bag around it and let the filter drop in the bag along with the spillage.. No muss, no fuss.

cool cool, I have owned all sorts of filter removers, these I really like when they just don't want to come off. After that, you can put a bit of oil on the seal and hand tighten it, the next time you take it off, it will spin right off.

Metal filter cap with a 3/8 drive ratchet did the trick on my first oil change. The cap was effective in not slipping while ""encouraging" the filter to loosen. I think they put the filters on dry hence the first removal problem. I learned to use a little USED oil to wet the new filter seal and it will come off much easier next time. And yes, the original filter did leave the rubber seal behind on the filter mount. Glad I checked before putting the new filter on.

I like the idea of using the gallon ziplock bag for the next change. That will save most of the mess. The hardest part of the oil change was cleaning up the spilled oil so it wouldn't drip all over the driveway and shop
