First DIY Oil Change
I changed my own oil for the first time and was in for a surprise when I located the oil filter. There are steel cross plates that evidently stiffen the chassis but one runs directly under the canister style oil filter. I 24mm socket will not fit and a box or open end wrench is too long. The filter holder top is made out of plastic so a vise-grip wrench, if would fit, will maul it. I lucked out because I had a 6 inch adjustable wrench that fit between everything and loosened the filter holder one flat at a time. After I cleaned up I went on line to find a Buick tool without luck. Hopefully some after market company will come out with a oil filter relocation kit to make the job a little easier.
