RAV4 - V6 Oil
The new NAPA (KD Tools) filter wrench P/N 3860.
This is a resin, combination 65 mm/ 67 mm wrench, with a steel insert in the
drive hole. (Beware of cheaper tools with no insert - they can break.) The
extra 67 mm section does not allow the tool to slide onto the filter housing
far enough to properly engage the 65 mm flats. To fix this problem use a
hacksaw to cut off about 5/16 to 3/8 inch of the tool. File the cut area
flat to remove burrs.
