Removing oil filter cap

There are tons of videos talking about using picks, or something similar to "pry" the oil filter cap (even see others that have drilled pilot holes on the edges to have a place to grab the cap with picks in the future), and last night I changed my oil and used the 'correct' method to remove the cap. I know I have seen it here, and elsewhere, but it was explained, and I have even seen people outline using the bolts that secure it with a zip tie to pull it out... So I thought I would outline it with a photo.

1. The oil filter cap is secured with M6 bolts.
2. The oil filter cap is threaded with M8 threads, so the M6 bolts don't thread through the cap, they just slide through it and thread in to the M6 threaded engine block
3. Once you remove both bolts (and cover your exhaust with foil to keep the dripping oil off it, as well as having your oil catch pan under that), thread in a M8 sized bolt by hand until it touches the block. Do this to both sides.
4. Using whatever tool you need to turn the bolt (allen, wrench, etc), turn it 180 degrees, alternating sides. This will bottom out the bolt on the block and push the filter cap out.
5. You will see the first O-Ring, then when the second one passes it will dump oil and you can remove the cap, and unthread the bolts, replace the o-rings and swap the filter.

You can see in this photo, the bolt on the right is the filter cap bolt, the one on the left is a spare bolt I have. You can see the identical spare bolt threaded slightly in the cap.

One note...some of the earlier models aren't threaded, which is why people were using those other methods you listed.
My 2013 wasn't threaded, so I had to tap the threads myself.
Thanks from Phl and mark419ny

That's why I posted it in the 1299 forum. From what I understood the 1199 wasn't originally threaded, but the 1299 were. And from a lot of the information I found it didn't actually list the 1299 and this method, only the 1199/non-threaded.

A reason for the photo.

Trying to pass along a little bit of "easy" knowledge with a photo.

*dying inside for wasting $8.43 on a pick set*

Thank you for this though! I did read it in another thread I posted in, and I will definitely be doing it this way going forward.

Ahhhh, but use the pics to pull out the filter! Best $8.43 spent...

Never hurts having a pick set though...

Just picked up a pair of these:



I actually buggered one of the screw holes on the engine case by screwing an M8 bolt into the M6 hole. Need to get the threads cleaned up one of these days.

FYIW the left bolt hole on the filter cover is very close to the stator cover, I doubt that will turn. The bolts in the photo barely cleared on the left side.

If anything, just drill a small hole in a bolt and put a loop of safety wire through it and use it as a "pull cord".

There are lots of options, but I doubt there is enough clearance on the left bolt, for that ring.
