Oil Filter Housing Gasket - Tool

I did this a few months ago and had a PIA time getting to the bolt behind the manifold.

I started looking around for something simplier and came up with this.....

Craftsman 1/4" socket # 33084 - 8mm
Craftsman 1/4" knuckle
Craftstman 1/4" Extension # 43531

Fits perfectly between the housing and the manifold. Hope it helps....

Agreed that is the tool to use, however e-torx 10/12 socket instead of the regular socket.

Sorry, I should of explained, that is a 16pt socket that also fit Torx head bolts.... not a standard 6pt socket.

Socket is in Craftsman Set #32824

Got one of those also.... just make sure you tie a string on to it so when it drops you can retrieve it easy.
