What size oil filter wrench 2007 V6

I'm having a problem locating the correct size oil filter wrench for my 2007 Camry V6.. What size is it and who stocks them? I've been to Csk (Kragen, Chucks) , Pep Boys but they don't have one that will fit.

Lifted from a guy who did a writeup...


Remove the filter housing and filter element


Use a 65mM/67mM cap-style oil filter


wrench ($4 at Wal-Mart) and the 3/8”
socket wrench and extension to


remove the housing. Turn


counterclockwise and withdraw it
completely.

I bought and used the cap from Walmart.
Didn't bother like someone suggested draining the oil from the cannister drain plug.
Just used the cap and took the unit down.
Not very messy.

I have a 65mm oil filter wrench. It's too big, it slips. I figured the correct size must be 64mm or maybe 63mm. I just casn't find one. Have you actually changed the filter on a V6. It's an aluminum cannister.

got mine from DriveWerks..

A lot of the filter wenches are a combo with the top larger than the bottom of the wench. (67mm top/65mm bottom). Have heard several people state thay have had problems with them. Those on the RAV4world.com forum (yes my other car is a 06 RAV4) that have used the 65mm only wench on the V6 (same engine/filter) don't seem to have a problem

I usually let the dealer change the oil the first time so they can deal with a over torqued canister/filter if it occurs. Although on this engine with the cartridge filter, I wonder how many Quicklub bays actually take the bottom drain plug out and use the plastic drain tool before spinning the cartrige case off.

My car came with a prepaid maintenance package, from the dealer since I am a returning customer so I will not have to pay for anything, oil changes or otherwise for the first 100K. I"m used to doing my own changes, but I think I"ll take advantage of this, though I'll be using synthetic.

Ok, I found the right size wrench. It's a 64 mm wrench made by Klann. Works great. Thanks for the input.

I just used an adapter with a nylon loop that I got from AutoZone... works with my 1/2" drive socket, wraps the loop around the canister, and as I turned the wrench, the nylon gets tighter and tighter until it eventually just turns the canister.

And yeah, draining some of the oil from the drain plug was a waste of time. So little oil actually came out of there that it wasn't even worth it. But I guess its worth doing it if you're gonna change the O-ring like I did.

I have the one from Wal-Mart 65/67 no big issue but sometimes it slips a bit. Like you can only use it in one position for a good grip

The 64 mm is the way to go. It fits like a glove, no slipping. It costs $25 after shipping, but I was wasting a lot of time running around to find one. I found it on Amazon.com.

64mm is spot on. The 65/67 work while the housing is new, but after a few turns and "pushes" for a good seal, I think those flutes will "lose their edge".
Tough to find 64 mm cup wrenches, but they are out there.

I just use the end of my 3/8 socket for the small flat drain cap. Then I just grab the housing with a cloth and turn. It isn't rocket science and doesn't require any special tools, at least for me.

Now granted, the first time you remove the housing it's super tight. The guys at the factory tighten the housing way too tight.
