    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.

    Not true, I've never broken an o-ring when changing the filter. And oil filters dont usually come with new o-rings.

    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.
