65mm 14 flute, or just use a strap wrench they can still work ok.

Kinda hard to find, ebay or your local NAPA dealer can get you one. Stay away from the combination ones.

I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem that I did.

The 65mm 14 flute wrench seemed to be too small for my oil filter cap. I couldn't get it to fit over the cap. Was a little too small.

I hoped moving up to the 65/67mm 14 flute combo, although most said it didn't grip well, would be the right size and that was too large. Did what everyone else said and just lost grip every time.

I ended up using a strap wrench because I couldn't get either of the other 2 to work.

Anyone else have this problem or am I just "special"?

Same problem here, as it's a little small & very tight fitting. VERY lightly tapped it partway on and got the filter housing off. I believe mines a KD-3253, but I know I didn't get it from NAPA.

I had the same problem with a 65mm 14 flute wrendh I bought from Advance Duto -- too tight. I used a strp wrench to remove the filter and took the filer and wrench back tot he store. Advance Auto had another house brand wrench -- 64mm 14 flute that fit perfectly. The tolerance must be very, very small.

You said the 65mm was too small and then the 64mm fit. Wouldn't that be a mm smaller? I am trying to figure out exactly what I need to get, but this is very confusing. Anybody came up with an answer or know if you can order them from toyota?

I think the point is that whatever wrench you buy, it may or may not work. People wrote on here that the NAPA wrench worked for them, but I can't comment on that because I never got one. I bought my flutes from a local auto store and one was too small and the next size up was too big. I ended up using a strap wrench and I will continue to do that until that gives me problems. I would recommend using a strap wrench to get it off the first time and if you can get to the store to buy a flute with the cap in hand do that. That is the only way you are going to definitely get a good fit. If you have to purchase a strap wrench in order to do that then I would just continue to use that and don't worry about a flute. There is enough room under there to work with a strap wrench so a flute is not necessary and if you don't get a flute that fits perfectly, you may strip your cap or something like that. Just my opinion.

Funny that this post comes up to the top now. I'm in the process of buying the K-D Tools 3253 from Amazon for my first oil change in this car... Hope it works for me!


Also, I never knew this "cartridge" style filter existed until this car.

hah.. neither did I, my father told me he it used to be cartridges in old times... 1970's machinery

kinda annoying having to get a tool to make an oil change.. like if "bring it to the dealer" would be more often, wich come quite expensive for a damn oil change..
