Question about 1997 Lexus ES 300
I can get the wrench on the filter but I don't have room to turn the wrench. The handle is hitting the exhaust manifold, engine block, radiator hose or electric fan shroud. I'm trying from the top facing the filter. I don't see where there is room for my hand or wrench coming in from underneath. It almost looks like you have to loosen and move the exhaust manifold but that can't be right. I'm using a standard filter wrench purchased from auto zone. Any help would be very much appreciated....Barry
There are a number of oil filter removal tools designed for various applications. A knowledgeable Auto Zone representative should be able to help you select the correct one.

No you can get to them by using an extension on your rachet with a rotating socket. Play around with the extension and rotating sockets to see which works best.
