Best way to remove oil filter
What is the best way to remove the oil filter without breaking the o-rings? I been reading that most of the time the o-rings break upon removal of the oil filter.
Does anyone have advice?

Usually the filter comes with new o rings so why worry. I actually have never broken an o ring in any case.

I've only broken one o-ring and that was when I was hurrying because I knew I'd use a new o-ring anyways. Just use a flat head screwdriver and be very careful and patient. If you take your time to work the cap off you'll be fine.

If you order your filter from the store it won't come with a gasket but if you ordered the sea-doo maintenance kit it will indeed include a o-ring. At least thats what I remember.

I used the same o-rings for the three years I had my 06 GTX & never had a leak.

Loosen the cap about 5 turns, wrap a rag around the oil canister. Fire up the engine for a second, shut it off. The pressure pops the cap up so its easy to remove. Don't rev it up or you may have oil all over the place.
