that belly pan just about covers it all. got to take it off to really get to anything on the bottom end of the motor. If you are changing it for the very first time, like it was stated above, the oil filter gorilla installed it at the factory.

Two tips:

1. Remove your filter using an end cap oil filter wrench (see below).

2. After you remove the old filter, check to make sure the old gasket is not still there. I don't think they oil the gasket at the factory and is often sticks to the mounting plate of the oil filter.

you think the oil filter is hard to find. look for your PCV valve and your thermostat.
