Default Whatís with that oil filter?

Do any of you change the oil yourselves?

I tried changing the oil myself -that was honestly the Most miserable oil change I ever did! The bracing is in the way for removing the filter, so I kinda yanked until it came out. Then the fun part - trying to get a new filter in place without smashing it all to heck. It felt like I spent over 1/2 hour trying to get the new filter in. I did have a real delco filter, so the part was he same (I held it up next to the old one after the probs started-they looked the same. Iím not looking forward to the next oil change...

Do you loosen up the bracing or something when working on these? Any advice?

Thanks,
-doug

Default Doesn't get any easier

I have changed my oil at least three times and it doesn't get any easier. I use a 6 inch adjustable wrench to remove the filter holder and yank the old filter out. I don't know why Opel chose a cartridge style filter. I suspect the bracing was probably added by Buick and is welded in place. I would be interesting to find out if the non US-spec models have the same bracing.
