  1. Never actually showed what a great difficulty it is trying to get new filter in, notice that getting old one out was not easy without abusing it!

  2. I`m trying to change the filter on a right hand drive car, but its nothing like the one on your clip.

  3. In this video, a #8 socket is recommended. What system is that? I thought it meant an 8mm but that was too big. Even 6mm was too big, but 5 mm was too small. I had to go buy a 7/32" socket. Otherwise excellent video. Thanks for posting.
