Among these wrenches, the universal oil filter wrenches are the chain type and the three-jaw type.
How to use the oil filter wrench?
A wrench is a hand tool that uses the principle of leverage to turn bolts, screws, nuts, and other threads to hold the openings or sleeves of bolts or nuts. Wrenches are usually made with clamps on one or both ends of the handle to apply external force to the handle to apply external force to turn the bolt or nut to hold the bolt or nut opening or sleeve. When in use, an external force is applied to the handle along the thread rotation direction, and the bolt or nut can be turned, thereby achieving the purpose of disassembling and assembling the oil filter element.
Is there a universal oil filter wrench?
Both the chain type and the three-jaw type are universal oil filter wrenches, because the size of the parts of different models is different, and the corresponding specifications need to be equipped. Moreover, the shapes of the parts of the oil filter are not all the same, and it is necessary to find and use different forms of oil filter wrenches accordingly. There are many types of oil filter wrenches, each of which has its own advantages. For most cars, the best one should be the cap type, because it can be seamlessly interlocked with the filter, there is no damage to the filter, and it is easy to buy on the market.
