It also is the same size (65mm) as the spin on filters used on the I4's..
I had a RAV4 before the HL. I bought an aftermarket 65mm wrench for the HL only to find out I had one already from the RAV4 days..
I traded in a Honda CRV for the RAV4. The CRV filter was at the back of the engine, mounted sideways and dripped all over the cross members when you removed it.
I thought I died and went to heaven (well some where close
) when I changed the oil on the Toyota RAV4 and now the HL.
Was impressed on the thought that seemed to go into Oil change maintenance.
Filters are accessable and easy to change.
I have changed the HL filter using the drain tool and without it (the plug was too tight and the cartridge housing would turn so I gave up and just let the oil drain down the side of the housing)
I wonder how many Toyota Quicklub bays actually do the drain tool routine??
